Also known as 'Inchgall Castle', Lochore Castle was the fortress home of the Lochore family, established by Robert the Burgundian in c.1128.The castle was described as one of the strongest castles in Fife in the 16th century.
The tower, built in the late 14th century, was surrounded by a curtain wall with four round artillery towers. Excavations in 2015 found medieval pottery imported from France, fine window glass, and a carved stone shot-hole.
Loch Ore was drained in 1792 with the cutting of a large channel, but originally the castle had stood on an island.
