      A very interesting castle ran by the community and volunteers who are doing a great job. Lots of information on the audio tour.

      Run by the local people on a 50 year deal. DO visit and help with the project. Sits in a glorious position, walkable from town. Lots of good rooms/furniture/history.

  •   Driving from Dinnet through to Braemar, we came across this fascinating castle, which has rather a lot of history behind it - as you will see from the pictures below.

      The staff are very knowledgeable, all volunteers, you pay a small amount to get in which includes a tour 👍. Really interesting lots to see, and discuss with the staff. Free parking. We will revisit this year should the opportunity arise. There are toilets onsite.

      We visited on a rather blustery day with howling winds and cold temperatures, but it gave us such a feel of what living there in the winter must have been like. The sound of the wind against the chimneys and windows was crazy! It was...More
