Castle Maol, 15th century The two-fingered ruin of a three-storey tower house, commanding Kyle Akin from a rocky knoll. Once a Mackinnon stronghold (formerly called Dunakin, after Haakon of Norway), it survives only on the south wall (with window embrasure), and parts of the west wall and north east corner. Abandoned in the early 17th century, it probably once resembled Caisteal Uisdean
