Aberdeen and the Northeast Sights

Balvenie Castle

Updated 10/08/2013

Fodor's Review

On a mound just above the Glenfiddich Distillery is this grim, gray, and squat curtain-walled castle. This ruined fortress, which dates from the 13th century, once commanded the glens and passes toward Speyside and Elgin.
