Castle Leod

Strathpeffer

Castle Leod is situated near the Victorian spa village of Strathpeffer in Easter Ross, Scotland. The castle has been in by the same family for over 500 years and is the Seat of Clan Mackenzie, their Chief (Cabarfeidh), Earl of Cromartie, and his family. Extensive parklands surround the castle to the south and east, bordered by the river Peffery, and are also home to Aberdeen Angus cattle. Behind the castle to the north lies a pair of Giant Sequoia, the one on the left is the largest tree in Britain in terms of bulk and is supposedly the largest in the world at its latitude. Both it and the Chestnut are well known and included in the book ’100 Best Trees of Scotland’. To the west lies further woodlands, The Countess’s Well, and, nearer to the castle, the Rose Garden.
