Eat, drink and be merry in the company of the people who matter most amidst the splendour of your ancestral home. Not sure that Lickleyhead Castle has anything to do with your family? You would be surprised. Many families with Scottish heritage have a connection to Lickleyhead Castle. If there is a connection to the names Leith, Forbes, Duff, Lumsden, Skene, Maitland, Ogilvie and especially Leslie then there is a very good chance your long lost great something lived and breathed within these walls.

How many of them were your ancestors? Your family? Those people each had their story here. These stories are sometimes curious or amusing, other times dark or frightening, but they are part of your story and your family’s. To know them is to know a part of yourself. And what would you say to them if, just for a moment, you crossed paths on the spiral staircase? Bring your friends. Bring the family. Bring the people who matter most to a place where now and then meet. Your escape from the present day begins at Lickleyhead Castle!

Back O' Bennachie by North Sea Gas
Back O' Bennachie is a traditional Scottish song in the Doric dialect of Scots. This version was recorded by North Sea Gas, a local band. It is also known by the name 'Where Gadie Rins'. The song dates back to the early 1600s. Despite its jaunty tune the song is actually quite sad. It tells the story of a woman who loved two men, both of whom died in tragic circumstances. The video shows parts of the Bennachie mountain range, Gadie Burn from various points along its length, Lickleyhead Castle, the Ballater Games and other shots suggesting a Scottish theme!
