The Castle of Badenyon is said to have been home to John O’Badenyon in the 13th century. It was mentioned in the Ordnance Survey Name Book of 1866, but only to say that no trace of it remained. However in 1898 apparently some pieces of sandstone from the castle were visible next to a cottage on the site.
By the 16th century the castle was the home of the Gordons of Glenbuchat until they moved to Glenbuchat Castle in 1590.
