Activities & Attractions

An isolated tower house in the Cairgorms that was a residence of the high-status Forbes family. After Culloden in 1746, it was converted to become a Redcoat garrison fortress, largely to suppress Jacobite activity. What to see and do: Admire the splendid isolation of the castle, which is situated at the head of remote Strathdon. Check out the star-shaped perimeter wall - the castle's most distinctive feature was added when it became a military base. Visit the reconstructed barrack rooms to imagine being stationed here in 1750 as a Redcoat from Pulteney's 13th Foot regiment. Guided tours available on site Check out a variety of souvenirs from the gift shop. Open summer only - 26th March - 30th September Admission: Adult £6, Child £3.60, Concession £4.80 Visitor parking and bus parking available
