Duncan’s Castle Tours

The North East of Scotland regions of Aberdeenshire and Morayshire is known affectionately as “Scotland’s Castle Country”.  With over 300 castles, stately homes and ruins scattered across its many fields, hills and forests, Aberdeenshire is home to more castles per acre than anywhere else in the UK. Among the many offerings available are 19 of the most famous and dramatic castles on Scotland’s Castle Trail offering an array of residences, ruins and walled gardens that provide glimpses into a history rich with tales of clans, battles and mind boggling adventures .

The historical buildings in Aberdeenshire and Morayshire are well spaced out across the region and although some are still official residences, many are open to wander around. Some of them are famous for their gardens and these can easily take up to 2 hours to see fully.

If you include the time it takes to drive from one relic to another, with Duncan’s knowledge and planning you may be able to see three or four in one day Tour. ]
