GARTLY CASTLE (Site of) Gartly Castle (In Ruins) Jame Harvey Backburn

Alexander Mitchell Faichhill
034 The Site of the old Castle of Gartly, the date of its erection cannot be obtained, neither can anything authentic be obtained as to when it was demolished. It was situated on a small mount, and appears to have been surrounded with a deep ditch. It appears to have been a square tower; one end of it was standing up to a very recent date * but nothing remains now to mark the site, except a heap of stones and earth; there seems nothing so singular in its structure, as to merit particular attention. It originally belonged to the Gordons, (Berclays) it was afterwards inhabited by the Berclays (Gordons) in the Year 1489.
