Castle Forbes

near Whitehouse, Aberdeenshire - Lord Forbes


"This place, originally called Putachie, is situated on the north bank of the River Don, which passes through the estate, as it winds in and out, on its course to the sea. The present building is of recent erection, having been built in modern times by the then Lord Forbes.

John de Forbes was a man of rank and importance in the reign of William the Lion Heart. His son, Fergus de Forbes, was father of Alexander de Forbes, who lost his life in bravely defending the castle of Urquhart against Edward I. His wife was sole survivor of the garrison, and after the castle was taken she fled into Ireland and there gave birth to a son, Alexander Forbes, who fought for King Robert Bruce.

His grandson, Sir Alexander de Forbes, was raised to the Peerage of Scotland, by James II. by the title Baron Forbes."
