Duntarvie Castle has a history dating back over 800 years, and the Scots Renaissance mansion was held by the Lindsay and Durham families amongst others. In the 16th century Alexander Durham and his heirs held several royal appointments including Mary, Queen of Scots’ grant of the position of Master of the Prince’s Wardrobe to James, later King James VI and I; and so responsible for the royal tailoring. By 1826 the house was in need of urgent repair. It was uninhabited from the 1840s, and by the 20th century it was ruinous and roofless. In the late 20th century the castle was purchased by kiltmaker Geoffrey Nicholsby, and the ancient site is receiving a new lease of life with the tradition of fine tailoring being again associated with the castle. Duntarvie Castle has its own website, which you can visit here.
