Castle Roy consolidation work
Castle Roy consolidation work
Castle Roy is a motte and bailey castle, dating from around the 13th century. It is one of the oldest unchanged castles of its type in Scotland, and is designated as a scheduled monument.

The castle had been derelict for a number of years, with parts of the walls damaged and collapsing. There is now consolidation work going on to rebuild and stabilise the walls, and prevent further deterioration.
