023.01 "Inverugie Castle - This continued to be the residence of the succeeding proprietors until the Attainder of Lord Marischal, who unfortunately engaged in the rebellion of 1715. The precise time when this castle was built is not known; but as one part of it, now in ruins, was called Cheyne's Tower, it is probable that it was built by that family".
"Inverugie Castle according to historians was founded by Sir Joh de Keith about the year 1380. from other accounts it would appear that part of it had been erected at a much earlier period. That portion of the structure denominated Cheyne's Tower was probably built by the family of that name but at what particular period cannot now be ascertained.
Applies to the east front of the castle of Inverugie facing the public road - in height about 80 feet above the ground
