Drumin Castle, a 14thC tower house, commands a prominent, strategic position at the top of a natural embankment, it overlooks the confluence of the Rivers Livet and Avon, near the village of Glenlivet.
Only two walls of this imposing Castle have survived, which was thought to have been built for Alexander Stewart, son of King Robert II, better known as the Wolf of Badenoch.
The ruins have been stabilised and access created up to and into the castle, so its easy to explore.
The castle ruins are reached by a flight of steps or a grassy path both leading form the car park below. A longer walk; the Drumin circular path (2 miles/3km) can also be started from this point.
