For those interested in history, Invergarry Castle was the seat of the Chiefs of Clan MacDonald, a powerful branch of the Clan Macdonald The castle`s position overlooking Loch Oich on Creagan an Fhithich – the Raven`s Rock – in the Great Glen, was a strategic one in the days of clan warfare. It is not certain when the first structure was erected on Creagan an Fhithich but there are at least two sites prior to the present castle. After raids by the Clan McKenzie in 1602 which included the burning of Strome Castle, the MacDonalds of Glengarry fortified the Rock of the Raven. The result was an imposing six storey L-plan tower house. According to clan tradition, the castle was built with stones passed hand to hand by a chain of clansmen from the mountain of Ben Tee which overlooks the park the Glenfinnan monument of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite’s occupies a majestic position at the head of Loch Sheil both the monument and the Glen Finnan viaduct are a one hour drive from the park.
