Inverlochy and Lochindorb Castles – A Comparative Study

Iain Anderson and Piers Dixon Between 2009 and 2011, the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) worked on a new study of Lochindorb Castle.1 This work has produced the first in-depth survey and contributed towards a new understanding of the ruinous site, located upon a small island on Lochindorb and previously little studied due to its remote and inaccessible location. At Inverlochy, RCAHMS carried out a detailed drawn survey of the castle in 1982 and this is complemented by a large number of archive items resulting from various studies and excavations at the site.2 In the light of new measured and photographic data being available for comparative work, this study aims to look afresh at the relationship between the two castles, to take a closer look at their form and function, and beyond this, establish how legitimate long-standing comparisons of the two castles remain.3 O r i g i n, C o n t e x t a n d L o c at i o n Inverlochy Castle near Fort William (Figure 1) and Lochindorb Castle in Speyside (Figure 2) are two of Highland Scotland’s most complete surviving and little-altered thirteenth century http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architectural Heritage Edinburgh University Press
