Cawdor Castle

Atmospheric home of fictional Macbeth

Save to my Account

Cawdor Castle dates from the 15th-century and was probably not the home of the real Macbeth in the 11th century as Shakespeare would have us believe in his play.

None the less with its original 1454 keep, drawbridge, weapons enough for a small army, and a general atmosphere of creepiness, it’s a great Shakespearean place all the same.

There’s also an attractive garden to explore. Parts of it are 300 years old and include a particularly ancient yew tree, and there’s a maze too.
