New Statistical Account
002 This old ruin in situate near to the farm steading of Inshoch. It was at some remote period evidently a place of importance. Nothing now however remains of it, except the walls; which are still standing but in a very dilapidated state, nothing can be ascertained as to the date of its erection. It is the property of Brodie Esq. of Brodie. The old statistical account says, About a mile North of the Church, lies the old Castle of Inshoch, the family residence of the Hays of Loch Loy, now called Lochlee, who once possessed a considerable proportion of the lands in this parish. Within the ruins of Elgin Cathedral there is a stone sarcophagus with a recumbent knight in full armour
