Castle Roy, Nethy Bridge
Castle Roy, Nethy Bridge
These are the ruins of Castle Roy, or Redcastle. It stands on a rocky hummock which was probably artificially altered to improve its defences. There is no trace of a ditch. Castle Roy was basically a high wall and tower protecting those who lived in wooden lean-to buildings within the courtyard. Although the castle is said to have been the stronghold of the Comyn family, its history has not survived. Its style and construction suggest a date in the late 12th or early 13th century. The castle is deemed to be in a dangerous condition, and should only be viewed from the road.
