Ballone Castle was built in 1590 on the cliff edge above the raised beach, and has dramatic views out across the Moray Firth. The Dunbars from Morayshire built the original Z plan castle which was extended in 1623 by the MacKenzies to create a brew house and bakery. After the 1745 rebellion, it was soon roofless and by the mid-19th century had lost most of its fine details.It was bought in 1990 by Lachlan and Annie Stewart who set about restoring it as their family home, creating a fusion of authentic medieval with ANTA's 21st century Scottish contemporary aesthetic.
Building Date: 1590
