Leslie Castle is one of the great Baronial Castles built in Aberdeenshire around the 1600’s. Unsettled times meant that great houses in Scotland needed to retain some defensive capacity. This meant that fortified homes such as Castle Fraser and Crathes were retained, and new defensive tower houses were built such as Craigievar in the 1630’s and Methven in the 1640’s. The last fortified house to be built was Leslie Castle in the 1650’s.
Leslie Castle today is owned by the Baron of Leslie, who has opened the Castle up to welcome guests. From March until the end of September the Castle is run as a Guest house while from October to the end of February it is let on the basis of exclusive lets for the whole Castle, for a minimum of 2 nights.
Exclusive lets for the whole castle are possible at other times of the year subject to availability, an ideal venue for family gatherings, birthdays and groups please contact us to enquire.
