About Towie Barclay Castle
Towie Barclay Castle, some 4 miles south of the market town of Turriff in Aberdeenshire, was built in the 16th century by the Barclay family. The castle lay in ruins until 1971 when an award-winning programme of restoration was carried out by the present owners. It is now privately owned.
 
About the area
In the heart of rural Aberdeenshire, close to Royal Deeside, whisky distilleries, museums, over 50 golf courses, historical sites and the cliffs of the Moray coast, Towie Barclay is an ideal base from which to discover the many lesser-known jewels in Scotland's crown.
 
Things to do

  • A visit to the area would not be complete without taking in breathtaking Fyvie Castle, a few miles away. A little further afield, (approx 1.5 hours drive) Craigievar Castle is another fabulous example of turretted Scottish Baronial architecture.

  • Crovie village, perched on a ledge between cliff and sea and too narrow to even allow cars, is approximately 20 miles away. Take a walk along the pebble beach and keep an eye out for bottlenosed dolphins.

 
Getting there
The cottage is situated just off the A947, 4 miles from Turriff. Aberdeen is 27 miles away.
