Craigievar Castle

 The Craigievar is a castle,six miles (10Km) south  of AlfordAberdeenshireScotland.It was the seat of clan Sempill and the Forbes family for 350 years.It is an excellent example of the original Scottish Barional architecture,the great seven-storey castle was completed in 1626 by the Aberdonian merchant William Forbes,ancestor to the Forbes-Sempill Family and brother of the Bishop of Aberdeen, Patrick of Corse. Forbes purchased the partially completed

structure from the impoverished Mortimer 

family in the year 1610.Now this castle is 

working as a museum and everybody can visit it!
