Built originally in 1542 by William Adamson, it was transferred through a number of owners before John Strachan, Writer to the Signet, acquired the castle and left it to the Craigcrook Mortification Trust in 1719. In 1835 the castle was extensively remodelled by wh Playfair. During its time Craigcrook played host to a number of famous visitors and has strong links to the literary world including Sir Walter Scott, Charles Dickens, Hans Christian Anderson, George Eliot and Alfred Lord Tennyson.

In recent years the castle has been let on a long term lease for commercial purposes and in the 1970's a single storey l-Shaped annex building was added to the eastern wing of the castle.
