Huntly Castle


Situated in Castle Street in Huntly, Aberdeenshire, Huntly Castle was granted to Sir Adam Gordon of Huntly in Berwickshire in the 14th Century and was renamed having previously being known as Strathbogie. George Gordon, the 4th Earl of Huntly (1514-62), rebuilt the castle as a splendid Renaissance palace. The castle remained in the care of the Gordon family until it was given to the nation in 1923 and is now in the hands of Historic Environment Scotland. The castle shows three distinct stages of growth, the 15th century castle ruins sit within the courtyard, whilst the greatest remains relate to the 16th century development.
