The most prominent remains at Huntly Castle were built during the 15th, 16th and 17th century.

They consist of a five storey cylindrical tower at one end of a palatial building that displays some ornate stone carvings and oriel windows.

Although the Gordon family built the castle as a grand residence, the thick walls, gun ports and iron yett in front of the door, display its defensive abilities.

Within the grounds, the mound and some earthworks from the original 12th century motte castle remain, as do the foundations of a later 14th century stone castle.

Near Garlogie just west of Aberdeen
Establishment Photo
This is one of several stone circles to be found in Aberdeenshire.

The description given by Historic Scotland is that this Bronze Age sepulchral stone circle, 10.1 m in diameter, consisting of eight boulders, excavated in 1934, encloses an area on which eight small cairns were later constructed; 1800 - 1200 BC.

The circle is very accessible from the road through an avenue of trees. Unfortunately, some would say that the site seems to be a little "over preserved".

Location: Turn south off B9119 Aberdeen/Tarland road at Garlogie, in 250m fork left; circle lies on left of road in 1km).
