Drumin Castle, Scotland
Monday, September 28, 2009
This evening, I am posting information on one of Scotland's lesser known castles, namely Drumin which is located on Speyside and conveniently situated to add variety to the Speyside Whisky Trail. About 20 mins from Grantown on Spey.
Briefly, Drumin is open all year round and free to enter. It was a small castle possibly dating to the late 14th century and may have been built by Alexander Stewart aka "Wolf of Badenoch".
Drum is notable for its 2m thick walls. It may have been built on the site of a much earlier Iron Age fort or Dun. A pleasant location next to a river.
