Invermark Castle (2)

As can be seen here from the east, Invermark Castle is a very tall and rather elegant towerhouse, rising to 4 storeys and a garret. While at first glance the building work appears to be all of one period, as we shall see from closer views, it is not! The lower three floors were built in the early 16th century, and the upper two storeys including the two storey angle turret were added a century later. These 17th century changes, particularly the style of the gun-loops, are indentical to the summer-house at Edzell Castle, built in 1604, and it is reasonable to assume that David, Lord Edzell was responsible for both.
