the old keepOld photo   Braal Castle has an interesting history; the original keep was built in the 14th century. King Robert II granted the castle to his son, and was the principle seat of the Earls of Caithness.

In the 19th century the Sinclair family built the adjacent mansion now known as Braal Castle. It was later used as a hotel and was requisitioned by the army during WWII, apparently Winston Churchill stayed in the castle at some point during this time.

In the 70's the castle was converted into 15 flats, which were very popular for many years, however the castle was allowed to fall into a state of disrepair. We purchased the castle and surrounding grounds in late 2008 and started major renovations.
