Mounie Castle, 1641. Built by Robert Farquhar, Provost of Aberdeen (and passed in 1701-2 to Alexander Hay of Arnbath and in 1714 to George Seton, hence the last Seton castle). Plain harled three-storey rectangle with fine details such as the circular stair-tower very elegantly corbelled to square to form little cap-house-like top, the crowsteps and the coped chimney. The neat one-and-a-half-storeyed block at the north-east is late 18th century.
