Lovat Castle was a castle in the Highlands of Scotland, near Kirkhill and Beauly. The castle once stood on the south bank of the River Beauly. Originally known as Beauly Castle, it was built by the Bissets in the 11th-12th century. The castle came into the Fraser's hands via the marriage of Simon Fraser to a Bissett heiress in the 13th century and was dismantled for building materials in 1671.

Nothing remains of the castle. It is now the site of farm buildings at Wester Lovat.
