15th century castle near Crieff now in picturesque and ruinous state. Well worth a visit to if you are nearby. Walk from the nearby and wonderful Innerpeffray Library. Located beside the River Earn.
Built for John Drummond in the mid-15th Century and heightened for James Drummond, 1st Lord Maddertie, in 1610.
Rubble-built L-plan with square staircase tower in re-entrant angle; 3-storey with dormer heads, vaulted ground floor. Crowsteps, no turrets. External walls tolerably entire, interior greatly ruined. One jamb of Barmekin gate survives. Erected by James Drummond 1st Lord Madderty c. 1610.
Today the castle is a substantial ruin, standing to its full height, but with some localised collapses and no roof. Take care when visiting.
