Dating back to the 14th century and built by the Thanes of Cawdor as a private fortress, Cawdor Castle is a fascinating Scottish castle. Situated 30 minutes from the city of Inverness and 5 miles from Nairn, this castle is well worth a visit. Interestingly, it was built around a 15th-century tower house, which primarily belonged to the Clan Cawdor. According to legend, the tower was built around a legendary holly tree dating back to 1372. And to this day you can still see it in the dungeon!
