Redcastle Parish Church

A small village in Easter Ross, Redcastle lies on the north shore of the Beauly Firth, 4 miles (6.5 km) east of Muir of Ord. The ruined 16th-century Redcastle, a former stronghold of the Mackenzies, stands on a mound at the head of the Beauly Firth on a site where the original castle of Edradour is thought to have been built by William the Lion in the 12th century. There is a fine range of late 18th-century stables in parkland near the castle and the Gothic Redcastle Church by the firth was rebuilt from 1800.
