Clunie Castle is a 15th and 16th century tower house standing on an island in Loch Clunie.
The castle is thought to have been partly built using materials from its predecessor, also named Clunie Castle, on the banks of the loch.
In 1490 James Herring of Glasclune granted the lands of Tullibole to his son James Herring of Cluny.
In the late 15th and early 16th century Clunie Castle was a residence of George Brown, Bishop of Dunkeld. Details of the Bishop’s household expenses at “Dunkeld, Clony, Kynwaid and Tullelum” survive from 1505 to 1514.
The castle was vandalised in the 1960s and the roof fell in.
