Forter Castle was originally built in 1560 by the Ogilvys of Airlie as a fortified house, and was destroyed in 1640 by the Duke of Argyll. The castle has been completely restored using traditional materials. Katharine Pooley, designer, has transformed the interior of the castle into one of luxury and comfort.
