“Quaint castle in the middle of the Cairngorms”
Review of Corgarff Castle

Corgarff Castle
Ranked #2 of 4 things to do in Strathdon
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 September 2012

Corgarff Castle might be a little bit off the usual castle trail, but if you're passing this way a visit is certainly recommended. Unusually for most Historic Scotland castles it is not a ruin, but is preserved in its whitewashed form as it was when it was used as a barracks. The interior has been likewise reconstructed, complete with soldiers' bunks and even uniforms hanging from pegs! There are interesting displays up describing the history of the castle through uprisings, illicit stills, and road building campaigns.

A visit does involve a short hike uphill in order to get from the car park to the castle itself. However, once you're up there you're rewarded with some lovely views of the Highlands -- nice enough in the mist, but probably even nicer on a sunny day!
