Historic Scotland in the Scottish Highlands
Scotland's turbulent history has left an enduring mark on the landscape in the shape of the many castles, fortresses and tower houses that pepper the countryside. There are many sites dotted all around the Cairngorm National Park and all have the power to capture the imagination, which explains why they regularly top the list of 'must-see' attractions for visitors.

Cawdor Castle is a 14th century home of the Thanes of Cawdor and the castle regularly holds events throughout the year as well as being open to the public. There are other castles in the area and if it's history you are after then you are definitely coming to the right place.
