Castle Forbes description


Medium (1-150)

Welcome to the Official Website of Castle Forbes


The Castle Forbes Estate in Aberdeenshire is the seat of the Chief of the Forbes Clan. The lands were granted to Sir Alexander Forbes (later the 1st Lord Forbes) in 1411 for his part in the defeat of Donald of the Isles at the battle of Harlaw.

Castle Forbes occupies a commanding position in parkland at the heart of the estate overlooking the river Don and the Howe of Alford with the hill of Bennachie behind. Lord and Lady Forbes are always happy to show members of the clan round the principal rooms of the castle by prior appointment with the Estate Office.
