Twenty five miles north of Ullapool, Ardvreck Castle stands on the shores of Loch Assynt in Sutherland with the mountain of Quinag forming a stunning backdrop. A glorious vista of mountains, lochs, sea and a sky which goes on forever can be found from the top of Quinag over Assynt.
Ardvreck Castle was the home of MacLeod of Assynt and is believed to have been built in the 1590's. After the defeat of his armies in 1650 at the Battle of Carbisdale neat Lairg, the Marquis of Montrose retreated up Strathoykel but was captured by MacLeod and subsequently held at Ardvreck. Montrose was then taken to Edinburgh where he had been tried in his absence and was hanged, his body `headed and quartered'.
