[Drumin Castle]

The remains of this 14th century tower house stand on a ridge above the River Livet just before it joins the River Avon. Not much is known about the castle, but its southwestern side still reaches three storeys high, with newish stairs leading part way up. For the owners of the houses next door, it must be nice to have an ancient building such as this practically in your garden. For anyone else, it's worth a stop if passing thorough Glenlivet.
