Esslemont Castle *

<<<<<                             >>>>>

Description:

Esslemont Castle has been a Gordon property but it was not built by the Gordons. It was erected by Henry Cheyne of Straloch under a license dated 1500, and was only regularly lived in for about a century. The previous castle on this site was destroyed as the result of a feud between the Cheynes of Esslemont and the Hays of Ardendracht in 1493.
