Castle Menzies

Scottish Sikh Heritage Trail

Built in the 16th century, Menzies Castle was once the home of Maharajah Duleep Singh. He took up residence at the Castle after returning from a tour of Europe with Dr John Login and his wife in 1857 and lived there until the following year.

The Castle is located in Weem, about one and a half miles from Aberfeldy in Perthshire. It was home to the chief of clan Menzies for over 400 years.

Maharajah Duleep Singh reportedly lived a lavish lifestyle at Castle Menzies and entertained regular shooting parties. It was during the Maharajah's time in Perthshire that he was known by locals as ‘the Black Prince of Perthshire'. He was somewhat of a local celebrity being the first Indian Prince to visit Scotland.
