Balintore Castle

Balintore Castle is located in Angus, Scotland. The 19thcentury Baronial style castle was built upon an elevated site in the moorland above Balintore Village. The castle has turreted towers and gables, while the main tower has a balustrade viewing area. The interior boasts a great hall, a gallery, a library, servant rooms, bedchambers, a beer cellar, a lumber-room, a dining room, and more. The castle was built to serve as a sporting lodge and used during the hunting season. In the 1960s, finding the castle filled with dry rot, it was abandoned. The castle remained empty, collapsing and vandalized until 2007 when the Angus Council purchased it from a Taiwanese businessman through compulsory purchase. A Scotsman purchased the property from the council and is restoring Balintore Castle for his residence. As you can see from the pictures, the castle needs a great deal of work. Balintore Castle is not open to the public.
