One of the best preserved medieval castles in Scotland, this early 14th century monolith, near the village of Alford, was attacked by the outlaw son of Wolf of Badenoch in 1404 and was then dismantled after the 1715 Jacobite Rising. The ruins, however, have been extensively repaired and stand as an evocative reminder of a bygone age. The castle was built in the shape of a shield, reminiscent of some Welsh castles. In a nearby quarry are beautiful Alpine gardens laid out by Japanese designers in 1904.
