Invermay Tower consists of the remains of late-16th century tower house incorporated into later buildings.
Also known as the Old House of Invermay, it was replaced by a new mansion in the late 18th century.
Invermay was previously known as Innermeath and was in the possession of Sir Robert Stewart of Shanbothy from 1375.
The title Lord Innermeath was created around 1471 for Walter Stewart in exchange for the loss of his title of Lord of Lorne under pressure from James III. Walter’s niece, Isabella or Isabel Stewart, was married to Colin Campbell, later 1st Earl of Argyll, and the lordship of Lorne passed to her husband.
