Cabrach
Cabrach
The small hamlet of Cabrach gives its name to an upland plateau on the border of Aberdeenshire, an area of deserted moorland and deer forests. The A94 crosses the plateau on its way between Rhynie and Dufftown.
At the western edge of The Cabrach the road passes through the dramatic Glacks of Balloch, a high pass of rugged beauty. The area surrounding The Cabrach is rich in historic houses.

Among these are Glenbuchat Castle, a late 16th century tower house, 13th century Kildrummy Castle, traditional seat of the Earls of Mar, and Beldorney Castle, a 16th century tower house built by the Ogilvey family. Also within reach are Leith Hall, a 17th century mansion, and Balvenie Castle, once visited by Mary, Queen of Scots.
