Culdees Castle, Perthshire, Scotland

Culdees Castle is a gothic mansion built in 1810 by James Gillespie Graham. It's located on the edge of Muthill in the Perthshire countryside....sadly it is now in decay.

 

My daughters and I spent an idyllic couple of hours here after meeting the only groundsman left on the estate. He had been born in the Groundkeepers Cottage, his father had been the groundsman before him.

 

The estate is now in tatters, and we got a detailed and passionate tour of the entire estate, grounds, gardens and buildings. You ain't seen the last of this place!
