Slains Castle's Secret History: Warlords, Churchill, and Count Dracula (2022)
By Mike Shepherd and Dacre Stoker
A fascinating and well –researched history of this iconic castle on the Northern coast of Scotland, at Aberdeenshire, with illustrations and photographs of the castle- as it was in Bram Stoker’s day and is today, a towering ruin.
Slains Castle inspired the interior layout of Count Dracula’s castle in Bram Stoker’s novel, Dracula(1897) and Mike Shepherd and Dacre Stoker give a very good account of the fourteen known holidays Bram spent in and around Cruden Bay, many with his wife Florence and son Noel.
In addition to writing parts of Dracula while in Aberdeenshire, Bram set the novels The Watters’ Mou (1895) and The Mystery of the Sea (1902) in Cruden Bay.
