Kilcoy Castle is a ‘Z’ plan fortalice dating from 1618 (contemporary with Dalcross Castle QV). It was built for the Stewart family. It fell into a ruinous state during the late 18th and 19th Centuries and was restored in 1891 by the Inverness Architects Ross and McBeth who added a four-storey wing to the north. Maxwell & Company undertook a due diligence appraisal during the recent sale of the Castle and the subsequent owners, have commissioned the Company to carry out a programme of maintenance repairs and improvements followed by upgrading works to modernise the services and facilities. Maxwell & Company is currently working with consultant engineers to appraise options for the most efficient and sustainable energy systems which can be integrated with the historic fabric.
