Perched precariously on the cliff edge, Keiss Castle has stood since around 1600. The Z-plan castle has a vaulted basement and four floors.
Keiss Castle was built around 1600 by George Sinclair, the Earl of Caithness. Keiss House, situated behind the castle, was built around 1755.
To the south of the Castle you can see the open area that would have been the harbour access for the castle.
You can find out more about Keiss Castle, as well as other archaeological and historical sites, on Canmore, Scotland’s historic environment record.
The castle was said to have been build on the much older site of 'Raddar', although no references can give more information on this.
