19th century castle that was Queen Victoria's honeymoon site and the start of her love of all things Scottish. Closed and awaiting renovation (maybe)
Built over the structure of a Z PLan house between 1801 and 1842, the castle has been a home, school, hotel and now awaits something new.
It is a very impressive pile built in the Scottish Baronial style and is run down and empty. However, it is impressive from the exterior and gives a real sense of how feckless Scottish aristocrats wasted their money hugely.
Plans to turn it into a 6 star hotel have come to nothing and it remains an impressive ruin!
