Inverkeilor Primary School had an enrollment of 76 pupils at the beginning of the 2005–2006 school year, its current head teacher is Linda Cartlidge. In 2002 the school underwent refurbishment and had an extension added to the main building as well solar panels put on the roof. This also resulted in the destruction of the old prefab buildings which had been in use since the 1950s.
The parish was previously known as Conghoillis, and Watson writes that it was dedicated to a Saint Mo Chonóc of Cell Mucroisse, who may be associated with Forteviot or St Andrews, or perhaps County Wexford in Ireland.
The 12th century Red Castle built by the Barclay family is to the east of Inverkeilor, overlooking Lunan Bay. To the south-west is Ethie Castle, formerly the seat of the Earl of Northesk, which appears under the name of Knockwinnoch in Sir Walter Scott's novel The Antiquary.
Inverkeilor currently has a pub called The Chance Inn and a restaurant called Gordon's. It also has a large public park which was refurbished in 2013.
