Kildrummy Castle

Toggle location map

Visit ‘the noblest of northern castles’. Even ruined, the stronghold of the mighty earls of Mar is a fine example of a 13th-century castle, with its curtain wall, four round towers, hall and chapel.

What to see and do

  • Marvel at the castle’s location – at the crest of a steep scarp and defended to the north by the Black Den, a deep ravine
  • Find out the story behind the twin-towered gatehouse, possibly a legacy of Edward I and his favourite builder
  • See daylight shine onto the high altar through the chapel’s three elegant lancet windows dating from the mid-1200s
