Kincardine Castle

Kincardine castle was built in 1894-6 to Scots Baronial designs by David Niven and Herbert Wigglesworth.  David Niven became principal designer for the Victoria and Albert Museum. Webb later went on to design notable London buildings including Admiralty Arch, The Mall and the principal facade of Buckingham Palace. The architects set up in business together and Kincardine Castle was their first major commission. They were influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement and this shows in the design which incorporates features from five centuries of building styles.  It is now a private home and not generally open to the public.  It has only recently been handed on from Father to son.
