This evening I am presenting some images of Cawdor Castle, which is located near Inverness. The castle has a tenuous connection with Shakespeare’s Macbeth (Thane of Cawdor).

This is a classic medieval castle with tower and drawbridge. It is open to the public where visitors can view the sitting room, dungeon, freshwater well and kitchens. Contents include paintings, tapestries, furniture and books.

The gardens are of great interest also, both formal and riverside.There is also a maze.

Here is the Golf Club ‘Club House’.
