These are a selection of pictures of Castle Grant, the ancestral seat of the chiefs of Clan Grant in the heart of Grant country in Strathspey. The castle sits about 1.5 miles north of Grantown-On-Spey. These are pictures from both the outside and interior shots, some of which show the restoration work going on in the castle. (These photographs were take by our Webmaster & his wife, or by various members of Clan Grant, except where noted).
