With elaborate heraldry, carved fireplaces and refined decor, this palatial residence was a declaration of the power and wealth of the noble Gordon family. It stands on the site of a motte and bailey castle built in about 1190.

Robert the Bruce granted Huntly to the Gordons after the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314. There were many royal visits, although in 1594 James VI had part of the tower house blown up after suppressing a rebellion.
