Pink Castle set to star on Antiques Road Trip

Donside’s famous pink castle is set for another television spot, with Craigievar staff hoping for even more visitors.

The National Trust for Scotland’s Craigievar Castle provided the perfect backdrop to the STV production of Antiques Road Trip for BBC Television.

The episode will feature Margie Cooper arriving at the fairytale castle in her stylish Sunbeam Rapier and meeting Craigievar’s Senior Assistant Bill Brown to find out about choice items in the collection, including paintings by Raeburn, original 17th century furniture and exquisite plaster ceilings.

Margie, a noted antiques dealer and specialist in silver, said: “This is my first visit to Craigievar and it is truly amazing, it really is a fairytale castle and I was fascinated at how unspoilt it is.

“The beautiful collection is true to the Castle and it is like stepping back in time. I thoroughly recommend a visit there.”

Bill Brown, Craigievar’s Senior Assistant, was delighted to welcome the film crew to one of Aberdeenshire’s most stunning castles.
