The castle is boarded up, but it's part of a beautiful walk that is definitely worth doing in this area. Park at the old post office/honesty shop, lovely concept which was quite busy when we were there. I only stopped in it to grab some water for our dog, but it was nicely stocked. The walk to Laggan sands takes... More

The ruins of the old castle located in a beautiful spot on Loch Buie, we get to the castle single road, admiring the scenery, beautiful mountains with the peak of Ben Buie. Castle is an attraction too, which we do not have to pay, there is a beach with black sand.

We ran out of time to go to Iona and the tourist info suggested a trip to Lochbuie. Well worth it. The drive was stunning though the road was very narrow one lane. We arrived at standing stones. Took off across field. Hubbie and two kids sunk up to their knees in the mud. It was very funny and will... More

We had planned to walk to the castle from Craignure along the coastal path, but the tide was high and the path a bit of a mud bath! Also the further we walked the further away the castle appeared as a large bay appeared!! However, viewed from the upper deck of the Oban ferry which was very appropriately named Isle... More

I found this castle whilst hiking around Lochbuie. Fantastic little hidden gem tucked away near to Laggan Sands - definitely worth a visit.

Lochbuie has a GREAT deal to offer. I wanted to do a review on Lochbuie itself, but there's nothing set up, so this was the closest I could get. OK so what's there? Well there's parking on 'firm shingle' above the beach. There's an 'honesty cafe'. There is the stunning Laggan Beach. There is Moy Castle. There are highland cattle.... More

Me and my partner stayed in a cottage near Moy Castle on Laggan sands. This is a great day trip as not only have you got Moy Castle, there is the stone circle, the beach and some brilliant walks starting from Lochbuie. Definitely pop into the 'Old Post Office' it's a cute honesty shop, which sells lots of nice things.... More

Long way to go and you can't get in the castle. Looks like its being used to store Junk. Its very badly maintained and not very photogenic. Not worth the visit although Lochbuie itself is quite nice to have a look around
