The Tower of Craigietocher
Following the building of a new Scottish Castle, a project by Phill Plevey

This will be a project that we'll follow where Phill will send us pictures as he progresses through the building of his castle.

The Tower is being built by Phill Plevey and Meryl Corker.

The Tower is being built on 2 acres of land in a very seclude little Glen known as the Den of Gask, Nr Turriff, Aberdeenshire. There was nothing on this land when I started its a total new build of a copy of a 16th Century Fortified Tower House.

Read the story from Phill about the background to the project and progress to date

This is what it will look like when completed...

And now open in 2024 for B & B at:
