History

John Grant of Freuchie (4th Laird of Grant) gave Muckrach to his second son, Patrick, in 1583 and the castle was built soon afterwards.  Patrick was knighted by James VI and lived until 1626, being the ancestor of the Grants of Rothiemurchus.

From 1978-85 the building was restored after lying in ruins for centuries and a stone dated 1598, with the arms and initials of Patrick and his wife, plus the motto “In God Is Al My Trest” which had been removed to Rothiemurchus, was replaced over the entrance at Muckrach Castle.

The Castle was restored by architect Ian Begg, who has also left his mark with the St Mungo Museum in Glasgow and the Scandic Crown Hotel in Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.
