Cruden Bay: New Slains Castle
Cruden Bay: New Slains Castle
New Slains Castle overlooks the North Sea from the very edge of the dramatic cliffs, a mile north of Cruden Bay. Francis Hay, 9th Earl of Erroll, built the castle after James VI destroyed his old castle following the rebellion of 1594. The Hays occupied the castle for over 300 years but sold it in 1916, after which it rapidly fell into disrepair.

It is said that Bram Stoker was inspired to write his novel Dracula after visiting Slains Castle whilst holidaying at the Kilmarnock Arms Hotel in Cruden Bay.
