The guide books relate that Ormacleit (or Ormaclete) Castle was built for Ailean, chief of the Clan Ranald, over a period of 7 years
at the beginning of the 18th century. Unfortunately, it burned down to a shell in 1715
when a side of venison caught fire in the kitchen on the eve of the Battle of Sherriffmuir when the clan chief was killed.
Today, quite a lot of the structure remains and it appears to have been a two-storey house with a T-shaped layout rather than a fortification. It is surrounded by modern-day farm buildings so please respect the owner's privacy.
Over the doorway you can see an armorial panel.
