064 A fine old castle, from one to six stories in height, said to have been erected in the early part of the 15th century, the residence and property of Colonel Fraser.
"There are two large castles in the district, those of Cluny and Castle Fraser, built in the beginning of the 15th century; the former by Sir Alexander Gordon, a son of the Huntly family, and the latter by a Lord Fraser; both of a singular form, with a square tower at one corner, and a round tower at the diagonal corner, with leaden platforms and parapet walls; all vaulted below, and six stories high, evidently intended for portalices, the walls being 2 ells in thickness." Old Statistical Acct. [Account].
