  • Cubbie Roos Castle is one of the oldest stone castles in Scotland, built around 1150. This now ruined castle took its name from Kolbein Hruga, a Norse chieftain who is said to have lived in the castle.

    Cubbie Roo’s Castle would originally have been a simple stone tower with a ditch, earthworks and a stone wall as outer defenses. Now the thick stone wall survives only to a height of 1.2 metres and you will see some of the ground floor of structures.
