Craigievar Castle information
Lonely Planet review
A superb example of the original Scottish Baronial style, Craigievar has managed to survive pretty much unchanged since its completion in the 17th century. The lower half is a plain tower house, the upper half sprouts corbelled turrets, cupolas and battlements – an extravagant statement of its builder’s wealth and status. It's 6 miles south of Alford.
