A Bit About Buchanan Castle

Buchanan Castle was built by the 4th Duke of Montrose after the original Buchanan House was destroyed by fire in 1852. The Duke commissioned William Burn to design a new home on higher ground. The castle was completed in 1855.

After the death of the 5th Duke of Montrose in 1925, the Castle was sold to the Grahams. It was used as a hotel for a short time in the 1930s and was used as a military hospital during the second world war. It's best known patient was Rudolph Hess who was treated for injuries sustained while parachuting into Scotland.

It's now a protected ruin lying amid the sedate grandeur of the secluded Buchanan Estate.
