braemar castle

From the Late Middle Ages, the castle was a stronghold of the Earls of Mar.
The present Braemar Castle was constructed in 1628 by John Erskine, 18th Earl of Mar as a hunting lodge and to counter the rising power of the Farquharsons, replacing an older building,which dates from as the 11th century.
Since 2006 the castle has been leased to the local community and an ambitious restoration programme has been started. It reopened to the public in 2008.
