Huntly Castle Castles Next

Huntly castle is located in the "Whisky country" of Scotland between Inverness and Aberdeen.  There are many famous Scotch whisky distilleries nearby.  The castle is a ruin with much of the curtain wall and secondary towers destroyed.  The main keep is still standing and can be explored however.  There is even a dungeon of sorts.  My son, Douglas, had a great time running around this castle and its many rooms and passageways.  None of the chambers in the castle are furnished, so visitors are free to explore at will.  The views from the top of the main tower are impressive.
