Panmure Castle was a castle that was located to the north-west of MuirdrumAngus, Scotland.

The castle was owned by the de Valognes family, until the castle passed by marriage of Christina de Valognes to Peter Maule of Fowlis. The stone castle is thought to have been built by Peter Maule around 1224 and was destroyed by Andrew Murray of Avoch and Petty during the Second War of Scottish Independence in 1336.[1][2][3] The castle was the ancestral home of the Maule family of Panmure from the 13th century to the 17th century, when it was replaced by Panmure House in the 17th century.

The ruins of the castle and moat are a category B listed building, and has been designated as a Scheduled Monument by Historic Scotland.[4][5]
