New Slains Castle ruins lie on the edge of the cliffs of the North Sea of Cruden Bay, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The New Slains Castle is referred to as ‘New’ Slains because there is an ‘Old’ Slains Castle located just 6 miles away. All that remains of ‘Old’ Slains Castle is a bit of wall. The roof was removed in 1925 to avoid taxes and the building was abandoned and has been deteriorating ever since.
In the 13th Century, the Château de la Mothe-Chandeniers was the home of the notorious and powerful Barclay family. Although not royalty themselves, they enjoyed a close relationship with several generations of kings.

Abandoned Miranda Castle is straight out of a fairytale, but one that doesn't necessarily end with happily ever after. The Belgian castle, also known as Château de Noisy, is located in Celles, Belgium, and was built by architect Edward Milner.
