Craigievar Castle (NTS)

Alford

This perfect Scottish castle stands just as it was when completed by Master William Forbes - 'Danzig Willie' - in 1626. The simplicity of its lower towers contrasts perfectly with the turrets, the cupolas and corbelling which embellish the roof line. Within its walls the castle boasts a wonderful collection of family portraits and 17th-and 18th-century furniture.  Craigievar remains as unspoiled today as it was when lived in by the Forbes-Sempill family.

Opening Times

Castle closed during 2009 for conservation work. Grounds, all year, daily 9.30am - sunset.
