Heritage Ranger walk: Drumin Castle and the Wolf of Badenoch
August 1 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us for a walk around Moray’s earliest surviving tower house reputed to have been built for Scotland’s vilest man- Alexander Stewart, the Wolf of Badenoch. Drumin Castle is an impressive medieval fortification standing on a commanding bluff overlooking the confluence of the River Livet and the River Avon. Once we get to the castle, you’ll learn a bit about the architecture, history, and the notorious Wolf, whose evil deeds continue to cast a long shadow in Moray’s history.
“Cathedral and Toun
Wyld wrath did engulf
Lone Lochindorb Castle
The lair of the Wolf”
