Gordon Castle Tower Restoration

Work has begun on restoration of the tower at Gordon Castle, for centuries the seat of the chiefs of the Gordon family as Dukes of Gordon.

The tower is the oldest part of the castle, and was the only element of the original building to survive the grand remodelling of Alexander Gordon, the 4th Duke of Gordon in 1769. It also survived the demolitions of the post-war period, necessitated by the widespread dry rot of the time.

The initial work is being carried out by Masonry and Lime Ltd, and the owners of the castle, Angus and Zara Gordon-Lennox hope that the restoration will allow the building to be brought back into use as an events and weddings venue.
