Achallader Castle, a ruined fortified tower house east of Loch Tulla, is north of the Achallader Viaduct. Now within the grounds of Achallader Farm.
The castle, then a property of the Campbells, was burned and partly demolished in 1689 by Jacobites returning to Glencoe following the battles of Killiecrankie and Dunkeld.
In 1691 the Declaration of Achallader was signed here, the Jacobite chiefs being coerced into signing allegiance to William of Orange. This was to lead to the Glencoe Massacre in 1692. MacIain of Glencoe was considered to not have taken an oath of allegiance to William and Mary quickly enough.
