Corgarff Castle

Set in a barren moorland, Corgarff’s medieval tower house, built in the mid-16th century, is surrounded by a distinctive star-shaped perimeter wall of 18th century date.


  • Its location – stunningly set in splendid isolation at the head of remote Strathdon.
  • The reconstructed barrackrooms – recreating something of the atmosphere of barrack life here in 1750, when redcoats from Pulteney’s 13th Foot were stationed here.
