14th Century
Cawdor Castle dates from the late 14th century and was built as a private fortress by the Thanes of Cawdor. The ancient medieval tower was built around a legendary holly tree. Although the House has evolved over the last 600 years, later additions (mainly of the 17th century) were all built in the Scottish vernacular style with slated roofs over walls and crow-stepped gables of local stone. --
