About Invermark Castle

Invermark Castle is an implausibly tall tower house dating back to the 1300s and built to guard the southern end of the strategic pass leading from Deeside. The basement walls are over 5 feet thick. The doorway is around 9 feet above the ground and although the wooden door has long gone, the iron ‘yett’ is still in position. The present castle was built in the 16th century, and heightened in the early 17th century. The castle was abandoned in 1803.
