between Loch Lochy and Loch Arkaig, Highland, Scotland
The castle is located on a narrow stretch of land between Loch Lochy and Loch Arkaig. The castle was burnt down in 1746 after the Battle of Culloden. After about 50 years in ruins, Achnacarry was rebuilt under Donald Cameron in 1802 as a Scottish baronial style home, although it is still referred to as a castle.
When the Jacobite army was defeated at Culloden in April 1746 the clans retreated into the Scottish Highlands and took to the mountains. Achnacarry was burnt down in the aftermath.
