Scottish Castles On The North Coast 500
North Coast 500 Business Description
Cawdor Castle is steeped in intrigue and history.
Cawdor Castle dates from the late 14th century, built as a private fortress by the Thanes of Cawdor. An ancient medieval tower built around the legendary holly tree.
This fortification, founded by William the Lion in 1179 was sited to command the ford over the river Nairn near the sea.
That castle has since vanished without trace. The family had another residence at Old Calder which, according to the Exchequer accounts, was last repaired in 1398. Again, not much remains of that building apart from faint crop-marks.
