Boyne Castle

The overgrown remains of Boyne Castle are located on the Burn of Boyne, southeast of the Boyne Bay on the northern coastline of Aberdeenshire. Situated between Portsoy and Banff, the castle was build for Sir George Ogilvie in 1575. It comprises a courtyard with buildings still standing three storeys in height, surrounded by a stone-lined ditch with a causeway. Abandoned in the 18th century, Boyne Castle was drawn in 1815 by William Daniell (1769 - 1837) with the resulting aquatint published in his Voyage Round Great Britain.
