Findlater Castle

Toggle location map

Coastal fortifications can still be found along the Banffshire coastline including the rugged ruins of Findlater Castle on a tiny peninsula with a 50 foot drop to the sea below. A castle was first recorded here in 1246.

The name gives a clue to the undoubted Norse influence in the area – ‘fyn’ being white and ‘leitr’ cliff – so called because there is quartz in the rock.
