The Castles of Mar
The "Castles of Mar," namely Midmar, Fyvie, Castle Fraser, Cragievar and Crathes Castle, were built by a prominent family of Bell masons, headed by Master Mason George Bell whose "signature" is inscribed right into the walls of the castles. The castles are located outside of Aberdeenshire, Scotland (Grampian Highlands - N.E. quarter). They are some of the finest examples of French influenced architecture based on the "Z-Plan." In actuality, they are baronial dwellings, not castles, but no one refers to them as such in this day and age. Cragievar castle was featured as the logo for Philip Morris cigarettes for years.
