Dunrobin Castle

Dunrobin Castle

Dunrobin Castle is a stately home and family seat of the Earl of Sutherland and the Clan Sutherland. Parts of the Castle date to the 1300's, but most of the present building and the gardens were added by Sir Charles Barry between 1835 and 1850.


The castle is said to be haunted by the apparition of a man, phantom footsteps pacing the gift shop, and in times past sobbing in the night from one particular room.
