Huntingtower Castle gives you a great sense of what castle life was like as it is really well preserved and has two complete tower houses. There is a rare fine painted ceiling in the eastern tower that is one of the best preserved and oldest of its kind in Scotland. Look out for the Green Man in the painting.
If you have a head for heights and don't mind a bit of a climb, you can venture out on to the battlements and enjoy some fabulous views. There are plenty of winding corridors and hidden nooks and crannies to investigate, plus information boards in each room, providing historical facts and stories of royal intrigue and romantic escapes.
The castle is steeped in history, some of it bloody, and has hosted famous visitors such as Mary Queen of Scots and her son James VI, although he was held here against his will during a famous episode known as ‘Ruthven Raid'.
