Craigievar Castle

Nestled on a picturesque hillside, the elegant pink tower of Craigievar Castle is spellbindingly beautiful, sure to enchant children and adults alike.

Begun in the Scottish Baronial style around 1576, this iconic tower house is among the best preserved and the most loved in Scotland; its exterior remains virtually unchanged since William Forbes completed it c1626. Craigievar was a family home until the 1960s, creating a quirky blend of cosy interiors and rare antiquities within the ancient walls.

In accordance with the former owner’s wishes, artificial light has not been installed in the upper floors. This means that the castle’s extensive collection of historic artefacts and art is seen in the shifting light from the sun, exactly as they would have been when they were made.
