On a day which we had visited a priory (Beauly) and a battlefield (Culloden) we next went to Cawdor Castle and its beautiful gardens with a very overcast sky, but that didn't take away from its grand appearance. Cawdor Castle is an unusual castle in that it is the home for a lovely woman (we saw paintings of her). She lives elsewhere during the summer (tourist) season and returns to live in for the winter. We were able to tour the inside the castle and see the lovely rooms she inhabits, but of course, weren't able to take pictures. The docent inside was a wealth of information of the history of the castle. The earliest documented date for the castle is 1454, although some parts of the castle have been dated to about 1380. The original castle was a large tower (or keep). The castle was built around a small, living holly tree, the remains of which can still be seen in the lowest level of the tower. Significant additions made to the castle in the 17th century and 19th century. The iron yett (gate) here was brought from nearby Lochindorb Castle around 1455 after Lochindorb had been forfeited by the Earl of Moray. Additions made in the 17th century were all built with slated roofs and crow-stepped gables. The castle has beautiful gardens, including a walled garden originally planted in the 17th Century. Cawdor Castle is open to the public from Spring through Autumn. Cawdor Castle belonged to the Clan Calder. It still serves as home to the Dowager Countess Cawdor, stepmother of Colin Robert Vaughan Campbell, 7th (and present) Earl Cawdor and 25th Thane of Cawdor. The castle is perhaps best known for its literary connection to William Shakespeare's tragedy Macbeth, the title character of which was made Thane of Cawdor. However, the story is highly fictionalised, and the castle itself was built many years after the events of the play. The castle is known for its beautiful gardens, which include the Walled Garden (originally planted in the 17th Century), the Flower Garden (18th century), and the Wild Garden (added in the 1960s). In addition, the castle property includes a wood featuring numerous species of trees (as well as over 100 species of lichen). The massive, severe exterior belies an intimate interior that gives the place a surprisingly personal, friendly atmosphere. Good furniture, fine portraits and pictures, interesting objects and outstanding tapestries are arranged to please the family rather than to echo fashion or impress.
