Enigmatic Corgarff Castle stands amid a landscape that is by turns stunningly beautiful or incredibly bleak and barren. On a grey winters day it seems the most desolate place on earth, and perhaps to suit that mood it has a dark and deadly history.
Corgarff has passed through two phases in its long and troubled history. The first phase saw it used as a fortified residence, like many other castles in the region. The second phase saw it transformed into a military barracks, a role it frankly feels much better suited for.
