Castle Menzies is a 16th century castle which was the seat of the chiefs of Clan Menzies for over 400 years. It was involved in much of the turbulent history of the Scottish Highlands and played a key role in the second Jacobite rising by hosting both Bonnie Prince Charlie and, only four days later, the Government commander, the Duke of Cumberland.
Rescued from ruin in 1957 by the Menzies Clan Society the castle has been under constant restoration ever since and is now an excellent tourist attraction. If you want to take a wander around a real castle then this is well worth a visit. There is now a small cafe and shop too.
Castle Menzies is near Weem and Aberfeldy. Check out The House of Menzies nearby for some upmarket shopping.
