The history of Cawdor castle is absolutely fascinating. Dating to the late 14th-Century, Cawdor has been inhabited by the descendants of the Thanes of Cawdor for over 600 years. Of course, the castle is best known for its literary connection to William Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth, in which the title character is made “Thane of Cawdor”. But aside from its remarkable history, the elegant design and masterful masonry of Cawdor Castle are absolutely breathtaking and seem to captivate each visitor. In addition, the marvelous stonework and stunning beauty of its exquisitely-manicured gardens offer a magnificent feast for the eyes.
