Castle Moil

Castle Moil Skye Scotland

Castle Moil is a ruined castle located near the harbour of the village of Kyleakin, on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. The castle, an ancient seat of the Mackinnon clan, was a fortress commanding the narrow sound between Skye and the mainland, through which all ships had to pass or else attempt the stormy passage of The Minch. The present building dates back to the 15th century, but is traditionally thought to be of much earlier origin.
