Powrie Castle is a 16th century castle located in the north of Dundee, The castle was built in the early 16th century and later razed in 1548 by the English, then based in Balgillo, as part of the Rough Wooing.

It was after this incident that the castle was rebuilt as two separate buildings forming a courtyard.

The south wing was built as a Z-plan tower house with a vaulted ceiling.

This building is now a ruin and is on privately owned ground.
