Dunninald Castle Montrose Angus Scotland [00:48]
Tour Scotland video of Dunninald Castle, South of Montrose, Scotland. Dunninald has a history of at least a thousand years. The name is derived from the gaelic, dun a castle and ard, a high place. The first Dunninald was on the cliff high above the North Sea, so the name is a good description of the original site. A second house was built about 1590, to replace the old tower fortalice. By 1819 the second house was some 230 years old and the new owner, Peter Arkley, commissioned James Gillespie Graham to built a new house. This was designed in the gothic revival style and was completed in 1824. James Gillespie Graham specialised in the gothic revival style and built many houses and churches around Scotland. He designed the Glenfinnan Monument in 1815.
