Fairytale Castle Craigievar

An example of the original Scottish Baronial style is Craigievar Castle; a pink seven story castle completed in 1626 set in the rolling foothills of the Grampian Mountains.  It took some doing to find this castle with all of the driving through those hills and one lane roads but I had to see a pink castle.

It so reminded me of something from Rapunzel or Tangled if you are a Disney fan.  As we had already driven quite a lot that day visiting three other castles, by the time we reached here it was closed.  The caretaker there said it was alright for me to walk around the grounds to take photos which made me very happy.

Is it wrong to say a castle is cute because this one is!

    Very fairytale-like. Is the pink the natural colour of the stone?
