Slains Castle, also known as New Slains Castle is a ruined castle in Aberdeenshire. It overlooks the North Sea from its cliff-top site 1 kilometre east of Cruden Bay. The core of the castle is a 16th-century tower house, built by the 9th Earl of Erroll. Bram Stoker once stayed in the Castle, using it as inspiration for his story, Dracula.
