Mugdock's mediaeval castle is first mentioned in 1372 and was a Graham stronghold; the most notable person who lived there was James Graham 'the Marquis of Montrose' and Lieutenant General to King Charles I.
The 14th century castle sits on a volcanic ridge on the edge of Mugdock Loch. Although mostly a consolidated ruin, the castle's South West Tower has been rebuilt and interior has been fully interpreted celebrating the early to mid 1600's.
Visitors entered through a portcullis gate. Inside were a courtyard, jail and courthouse with accommodation for residents and visiting nobility. A great hall was added sometime during the 15th century. It was gifted to Central Regional Council in the 1980s.
?No disabled access at the castle itself.
