Castle Roy, Nethy Bridge

5 September 2020

6 September 2020

Highland - Badenoch & Strathspey

Castle Roy is reported to be the oldest masonry fortification in Scotland, dating from 1200 (MacGibbon and Ross 1872-1914) and is a very rare example of an unaltered building of its type.

It will remain the most accessible fortress when it opens to the public.  The site is currently undergoing a consolidation that has lasted for over 25 years.  However the end is in sight and the Castle Roy Trust is keen to open its doors, show the work being carried out and explain it's history
