The exact construction date of Udny Castle is unknown, but its foundations probably date from the late 14th or early 15th century. The castle was abandoned sometime around 1775 then repair work was undertaken in 1801. In 1964, restoration work was begun on the original tower house and the mansion house was demolished.

Small private castle which grounds are open to the public , It was built in the 15th century and its still owned by the Udny family who restored the original tower house in the 1960's. There is a small statue of the Lairds fool Jaime Fleeman who saved the family papers from being destriyed in a fire.

Nice private castle. Grounds are opened for quick walk. Not really tourists place, visit if around.

A lovely castle in a beautiful setting. Unfortunately, as there are people living in the converted castle, you can't go right up to the building.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
