Balbegno Castle

16th Century tower house that has recently become a very smart rental home owned by descendant of Prime Minister Glasdstone.


The house near Banchory is a well preserved 16th century tower house that has been in the possession of various families over the ages and is now owned by a direct descendant of the prime minister WE Gladstone who have turned it into a holiday home and a self catering rental (and a very smart and fashionable one at that)

The interior is entirely modern and only the exterior retains the traditional architecture. There are no interesting historical connections. 

Opening Times

Only available to people renting houses except for external which can be seen from highway
