About

Ormiclate Castle was built by Allan Macdonald, Chief of Clanranald and occupied from 1707. Macdonald was killed at the Battle of Sheriffmuir in 1715, and Ormiclate Castle is said to have burned down on the same day. The building is unsafe and there is no access. After the fire the ancestral home was moved to nunton in Benbecula and the castle was left to ruin after less than 10 years occupation.
