Braemar Castle was built in 1628. It was constructed by the Earls of Mar, one of the most powerful political families in 17th century Scotland.
It is a possession of the chief of Clan Farquharson and is leased to a local charitable foundation. It is open to the public.
The castle is purportedly haunted by at least two ghosts - a young woman with "wispy blonde hair" that appears to newlyweds who visit the castle, and that of a Scottish piper.
