Castle Roy
Castle Roy
Castle Roy, or Redcastle, a 13th century fortress, seen from a small car park on the Nethy to Grantown road (B970). The castle is unsafe and there is no public access to it.
A notice at the car park informs you that the castle stands on a rocky hummock which has probably been artificially altered to improve the defences. The castle consists of a courtyard measuring 24m by 16m with the remains of a tower in the north angle (furthest from you). The walls are about 2m thick and 6 - 7m high, built from rubble held together with a strong lime mortar. The castle was simply a high wall and tower protecting those within the courtyard who lived in wooden lean-to buildings against the walls.
