    Anciently the castle lands of Inshoch/Inchoch castle, North east of Inverness, were held by the Hays of Lochloy, a cadet branch of the Hays of Erroll.
    William Hay, son of Peter Hay, 1st of Megginch (d 1496) is said to be founder of the family of Hay of Lochloy.
    But this is not really compatible with the following:
    In the centre of the presbytery (not its original position) of Elgin Cathedral is an armoured figure. The inscription records: Here lies William de la Hay, sometime lord of Lochloy, who died on the 8th day of the month of December in the year of our Lord 1422, for whose soul may the Lord be propitiated.
    The Errol family in the beginning of the fourteenth century, had given birth to the Hays of Lochloy; whence, about the end of the sixteenth, came the Hays of Woodcockdale. (
    In 1460, Sir Thomas Comyn succeeded his father as Baron of Altyre. He also redeemed the Barony of Dallas from William Hay of Lochloy. (History of the Comyn Clan).
