Invermark Castle

Situated in a remote location in the Grampian Mountains, Invermark Castle lies at the end of Glen Mark, where it meets Glen Esk, just to the east of Loch Lee, 16 miles (26 km) northwest of Laurencekirk. The castle was built around 1526 by the Lindsay family making use of an existing 14th century keep. It sheltered David Lindsay after he had killed Lord Spynie in Edinburgh (1607), following a long-standing quarrel and James Carnegie, Lord Balnamoon, who was being sought by government troops after the Battle of Culloden.
