 Castles of Scotland - Burgie Castle






Location
near Califer, Moray, Scotland

Description
Burgie Castle is situated about 3 miles east of Forres in Moray. The castle was built by the Dunbars in the 16th century. Burgie was once a Z-plan castle with towers on diagonally opposite corners of a rectangular central keep. The keep is in ruins and only one tower remains. A private trust has been set up to consolidate the building, funded by the Highland Buildings Preservation Trust. Burgie Castle is very similar to nearby Blervie Castle which was also built by the Dunbars in the 16th century.
