Dudhope castle
Dudhope castle
Dudhope was the home of the Scrimegour family, hereditary standard bearers to the Kings of Scots. It is a 17th-century courtyard castle, extended from a 16th-century keep, which has now been demolished.

The property was sold by the family in 1668, to John Graham of Claverhouse, also known as Bonnie Dundee or Bloody Clavers - depending on whose side you were on. He led the Jacobites to victory at Killiecrankie in 1689, though died in the process.

The castle was later converted to use as a woollen mill, then a barracks. It was restored in 1989, and is now a part of the University of Abertay.
