Gartly Castle (site of)
Writing to Pennant in 1780, Cordiner said that Gartly Castle was “an old building,.., placed on a small mount, and surrounded with a deep ditch. It is a square tower; one end of it is fallen down, and shews a section of strong vaulted rooms; but there seemed nothing so singular in its structure, as to merit more particular attention.”
The Ordnance Survey Name Book of 1871 recorded that it was just a pile of stones by that time, and that it “was inhabited in the year 1489”.
The last remains of Gartly Castle were removed in 1982, and there is now nothing to be seen in this field.
