"The Calda house" Ardvreck Castle Things to Do Tip by shivan

Ardvreck Castle Things to Do: 8 reviews and 8 photos

  The Calda house as seen from the castle ramparts
by shivan

After those wars, the Mackenzies came to the area and built nearby Calda House. In the 18th century Calda and Ardvreck were both destroyed by fire.
Legend has it that a wicked old dowager lived in the castle for many years. It was apparently struck by lightning after 5 years of poor harvests and difficult fishing which many believed was proof that the old woman had put a curse on the region.
