(NK 1378 4576) Site of Castle (NAT)

OS 6" map, (1929).

The Castle on the Ness of Keith Inch consisted chiefly of a round tower with a flat roof. Joining this tower on the landward side was an unadorned house of two floors, not so high as the tower, and of no great length.

The castle was demolished, around 1813, to make way for harbour and other improvements.

J T Findlay 1933.

The castle was probably constructed shortly after 1589.

J Ferguson 1914.

No trace of a castle exists and no further information was discovered.
