Craigievar Castle, located in northern Scotland, is considered one of the best preserved and most authentic tower houses in the country. It was completed in 1626, and for 350 years it was home to the Forbes family. The castle has simple lower towers and detailed turrets, cupolas and corbels that embellish the roof. The great tower remains the way it was when it was completed in 1626. Inside the castle, visitors will find family portraits, original plaster ceilings, and original Jacobean woodwork and furniture, including the Craigievar Table. 

Over the years, Craigievar Castle has been well-preserved, and as a result, it is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. When a group of benefactors, including some members of the family, purchased the castle and presented it to the National Trust for Scotland, it came with the majority of its original contents. The fairytale castle is surrounded by picturesque park grounds, two marked trails, a small Victorian kitchen garden, and a Scottish glen garden.
