There are the remains of three castles at Huntly. The best preserved is the palatial residence of the Gordon family which was built and then modified during the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries. Also visible on the site is the grass mound from the original motte and bailey castle and the foundations of its successor, a 14th century tower house.
