Admire a picturesque late-medieval tower house overlooking farmland and the Bridge of Buchat.
Glenbuchat Castle was built in the late 1500s to a Z-shaped plan. It shows how sophisticated tower houses had become by this time, with its round and square corbelled turrets.
Like the castles at Auchindoun and Huntly, Glenbuchat belonged to a branch of the Gordon family. These castles demonstrate the dominance the Gordons held over north-east Scotland in the late-medieval period.
