The castle is believed to have been built in the 12th century. It is likely that the present Carrick Castle is the second structure to occupy this location. The first may have been a hunting lodge for the kings of Scots. The land originally belonged to the Lamonts. However, in 1368 it passed to the Campbell Earls of Argyll.

There is an appendage of a smaller 17th Century structure to the original rectangular tower house was constructed in the 1400's.It is recorded that Mary, Queen of Scots visited here in 1563. A Campbell stronghold for over three hundred years, it was captured during the Argyll’s rebellion, by Atholl. The victors pillaged and burned it and completely destroyed it by fire in 1685.
