Ormond Castle, also known as Avoch Castle, was a powerful
stronghold, overlooking the village of Avoch, on the Black Isle, in
the former county of Ross and Cromarty, now part of Highland,
Scotland. It is conceivable that it was one of the two castles
known to have been erected during the reign of William the Lion on
the Black Isle, as royal fortalices. By the thirteenth century, the
castle was in the hands of the de Moravias of Petty and was where
they ruled their vast tracts of land across Moray. Andrew de
Moravia mustered the men of Moray to join King John Baliol at
Ormond Castle following his dishonour in front of Edward I of
England, at the outset of Wars of Scottish Independence.
