Menzies is located at Weem, near Aberfeldy in Perth and Kinross
and is a Z-plan tower of late 16th century in origin. Replacing
a castle which was burned to the ground in 1502, this Castle
Menzies was built with local stone and decorated with blue slate
and occupies land which is ancient Menzies homeland. Owned by
the clan Menzies chiefs until 1918, it is now in the care of
the Menzies Clan Society. Of particular interest are the great
hall, with its ceiling commemorating the Union of 1707, Prince
Charlie's Room, where the Young Pretender slept for two nights
and the anteroom with its collection of memorobilia. The western
wing was added in 1840 and was designed by William Burn.
