Claypotts Castle is the perfect "Z" plan towwer house, built between1569 and 1588 by John Strachan of Angus. It remains both intact and little altered throughout the years.
The castle owes its unusual appearance to the the asymetrical square towers corbelled out over two circular towers at diagonally opposite corners.
It was later owned by Bonnie Dundee, and was still inhabited into the 19th Century.
It is open for limited opening days through the year, but the exterior is always approachable.
In the care of Historic Scotland
