Corgarff Castle can be found in the Strathdon area of Aberdeenshire. This is a tower house thought to have been built by John Forbes in the early part of the 16th century.\r\n\r\nVarious people fought for ownership over the following years and then after the Jacobite Rebellion around 1745 it was taken over by the state and converted into military barracks. In 1827 it was used to supress whisky smuggling. It\u2019s an interesting building to visit.\r\n\r\nYou can still see the barracks and there\u2019s also a brewhouse and a bakehouse on the west pavilion and a star shaped perimeter wall with musket loops. As well as the interesting history the views from the Tower House are beautiful.\r\n\r\nTake note however that it is a bit of a walk from the car park to the Castle so not ideal for anyone with mobility problems.
