Engraving of Ravenscraig Castle. Titled 'ADC. Ravens-craig. In Aberdeenshire, situated on the water of Uggie, near Peterhead, was a Castle of great strength; the river, which is of considerable depth, washes the walls on the north side. It was likewise defended by a ditch and a draw-bridge in the front. The walls are of great thickness, in which are several small apartments, with loop holes. There is no tradition as to the time when it was built, nor by whom. It appears from an old manuscript account of the Marischal family, that Sir Edward Keith, the 15th in descent from him who flew Camus, the Danish general, at the battle of Barry, in Angus, in the reign of King David Bruce, obtained, by marriage with Lady Isabella Keith, the whole parish of Peterhead, in which this Castle lies.' [Adam de Cardonnel, "Picturesque Antiquities of Scotland," 1788.]
