  • Aberscors
  • Ardvreck Castle ❊ - a ruined castle dating from the 16th century which stands on a rocky promontory jutting out into Loch Assynt; thought to have been constructed c.1590 by the Clan MacLeod family who owned Assynt and the surrounding area from the 13th century onwards. Ardvreck has long been a stronghold of the clan MacLeod. The most well known historical tale concerning the castle is that on 30 April 1650 James Graham, 1st Marquess of Montrose, was captured by the Laird of Assynt and held at the castle before being transported to Edinburgh for trial and execution. Montrose was a Royalist, fighting on the side of Charles I against the Covenanters. Montrose was executed on 21 May 1650, by hanging, drawing and quartering. Archibald Campbell, Marquess of Argyll, a covenanter and Montrose's rival, was himself executed in 1661 after the restoration of the monarchy. Clan MacKenzie attacked and captured Ardvreck Castle in 1672, and then took control of the Assynt lands. In 1726 they constructed a more modern manor house nearby, Calda House, which takes its name from the Calda burn beside which it stands.
