The island has a fascinating history dating back to the 1300s and the ruins of the 14th-century castle, built by Duncan, the Eighth Earl of Lennox, can be seen along with other archaeological sites. The island has been attracting visitors for many centuries, some not always welcome. Rob Roy Macgregor raided the island in 1715 when it belonged to the Marquis of Montrose and stole all the cattle, deer and every boat on the loch. Kings and earls owned and visited the island for many centuries and it was stocked as a deer park. In 1930, the island was purchased by the Scott family who have lived and farmed Inchmurrin Isalnd for three generations.
The superb self-catering properties comprise of three apartments and two lodges a short walk away. There is a restaurant and bar (open from March to November), boat mooring and a ferry service.
