Notes: Kildrummy Castle is a ruined castle near Kildrummy, in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Though ruined, it is one of the most extensive castles dating from the 13th century to survive in eastern Scotland, and was the seat of the Earls of Mar. It is owned today by Historic Scotland and open to the public. The castle was given into the care of the Ministry of Works in 1951, and is now owned by its successor organisation, Historic Scotland. Kildrummy Castle gardens, in the quarry used to excavate stone for the castle, are both open to the public. A hotel (the Kildrummy Castle Hotel) has been built on the old estate, overlooking the ruins. Kildrummy Castle was the venue for the Scottish Sculpture Open, sometimes known as the Kildrummy Open, organised by the Scottish Sculpture Workshop from 1981 to 1997.
