In light of updated Scottish Government advice regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have taken the decision to close public access to our staffed properties and offices until further notice.

 

Unravel the two very different tales of this medieval tower house. Originally a noble residence, Corgarff became an army base for hunting down Jacobite sympathisers and, later, whisky smugglers.

  • 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
