Dunnottar Castle is a ruined medieval fortress located upon a rocky headland about 1.9 miles south of Stonehaven. The surviving buildings are largely of the 15th and 16th centuries with the site been fortified in the Early Middle Ages. Dunnottar has played a prominent role in the history of Scotland through to the 18th-century Jacobite risings because of its strategic location and defensive strength.

The castle was restored in the 20th century and is now open to the public and can also be hired for a very special Scottish Wedding. The castle is privately owned, see website for more details and opening times.
