Invergarry Castle - The ruins of Invergarry Castle, once the seat of the powerful MacDonnell Chiefs of Glengarry, stands on Creagan an Fhitich (The Raven's Rock) in the grounds of Glengarry Castle Hotel, overlooking Loch Oich. It was burned down after the Jacobite Risings in 1715 and again in 1745. Before and after the Battle of Culloden it gave shelter to Prince Charles Edward, better known as Bonnie Prince Charlie.
Well of the Seven Heads – This well has some story to tell. It was erected in 1812 by the Glengarry chief. The heads of the seven murderers of the family of Keppoch were washed in the well before being presented to the Clan chief at Invergarry Castle in 1665.
