Description Engraving of Dunnideer Castle. Titled: 'Dunadeer. This castle also called Dun O' Dore stands on the summit of a considerable hill, rising out of the flat country of the Garrioch, about 12 miles from Old Meldrum. It was a place of great strength, defended by a double ditch and rampart. The building is now entirely demolished , except part of one end, which is the subject of the above plate. It is said to have been the residence of Gregory the Great, King of Scotland, who, in the year 892, according to Leslie and other Scottish historians, died in this Castle, and was from hence carried to Iona, where he was buried.
