Corgarff Castle


The White House, Corgarff, Strathdon, Aberdeenshire, AB36 8YL

    Corgarff Castle, dating back from the 16th century, sits in the tranquil Aberdeenshire countryside.

    Situated in stunning scenery with magnificent views, this tower house is thought to have been built in 1550 before being converted in to a barracks for government troops in 1748.

    The castle’s last military use was to control the smuggling of illicit whisky between 1827 and 1831. Today the site is still complete with its 18th century star-shaped fortification.

    The west pavilion houses the bakehouse and brewhouse and is accessible to visitors using wheelchairs or to those with limited mobility.
