Lochinch Castle

Photograph and information of Lochinch Castle part of the Stair Estates famed for its Victorian stables and weddings

This is a fine example of an early Victorian Scottish castle, built for comfort and opulence rather than defence. It forms part of the Stair Estates which includes the nearby Castle Kennedy and Gardens which are open to the public.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.

Lochinch Castle is the private home of the Earl and Countess of Stair and does not allow visitors except by arrangement such as for weddings or their Christmas fair. We were fortunate enough to be able to see their art exhibition in the Victorian stables so took these photographs.
