About KCFA

The Kinloch Castle Friends Association (KCFA) is a very diverse group of people who have been captivated by Kinloch Castle.

The castle is a special place which takes hold of the visitor whether on a day trip or during a longer stay.

Many want to come back for a longer visit and develop an interest in the conservation of this gem.

The KCFA has worked hard to make our voice heard in the defence of this precious building.

Although our bid for asset transfer failed, during Covid lockdown we continued to explore other options and following a well received webinar, interest was aroused in buying the Castle, culminating in the offer from Jeremy Hosking who has set up a Charitable Trust from which to restore and then run the castle as an hotel. We are delighted to support Jeremy in this as he has a proven track record in restoration and an interest in tourism in the Lochaber area. We are keeping people informed through a series of updates. If you would like to receive these, please contact the Hon Secretary, Catherine Duckworth via email at kcfasec@gmail.com

Members are from all over the world although mainly from the UK. Each member has a unique view and input.

Work parties are an opportunity for Friends to become friends as well as to underline our commitment to the restoration and conservation of the building and contents.
