Ghosts and villains, Jacobites and high fashion, the story begins in 1628 when the Earl of Mar built Mar Castle as his Highland hunting lodge. Associated with all 3 Jacobite uprisings, the castle was burned by the infamous Jacobite, the Black Colonel, and was the base for the Earl of Mar as he planned the 1715 uprising. After the 1745 rebellion, it was a garrison for Hanoverian soldiers stationed there to make sure that no-one dared break the law and wear tartan or carry weapons. In the 20th century, the castle was home to American fashion journalist, Editor of Harper’s Bazaar and wife of the Chief of Clan Farquharson, who decorated the rooms in her signature Schiaparelli pink.Now operated by the local community, you’ll be shown round by friendly local guides who enjoy sharing their knowledge and stories of the area. There are hidden teddy bears for the children to count as well as a shop with gifts, teas and coffees Open on Saturdays and Sundays ( 7th April to end of October) from 10am to 4 pm (last tour 3.45) and also on Wednesday during July and August. « less
