Ardvreck Castle and Calda House, Loch Assynt, Sutherland, North West Scotland. Calda House (left) and Ardvreck Castle (right) is a ruined castle dating from the 16th century which stands on a rocky promontory jutting out into Loch Assynt in Sutherland, North West Coast Scotland. Ardvreck Castle was thought to have been built in 1590/91 by the Macleods who owned Assynt since the 13th century. Calda house was built in c. 1725 as a successor to Ardvreck Castle, by Kenneth MacKenzie of Assynt. It is described as having 14 bedchambers “with the conveniency of chimnies or fireplaces”. This building was destroyed by fire in 1737.
