Right in the heart of the Highlands with sweeping views across Glenisla, this corker of a castle is about an hours drive north of Perth; a place of rolling skies, mist covered mountains, and according to legend, stone throwing giants. It was rescued by the Pooley family, who bought it from the Earl of Airlie in 1988 some 300 years after it was burned down by the feuding Argylls.
