Tolquhon Castle, Aberdeenshire - a different view of this wonderful castle ruin.
Tolquhon Castle is located in Aberdeenshire, about 20 miles northwest of Aberdeen. The current castle was built by William Forbes, 7th Laird of Tolquhon from 1584-1589 to replace an earlier tower house known as Preston's Tower, which is still partly intact.
The castle features unusual gun ports in the towers adjacent to the entrance, a design which was subsequently used in Dean Castle. Also unusual is the stone tilework in the main hall.
If you like my work please consider voting for it. It only takes a second.
