Castle Grimstead (formerly known as Castle Greatstead) was a castle in Shadowdale, in the Dalelands. It was constructed in 834 DR by the Glittering Band with the aim of driving back the drow who inhabited the nearby Twisted Tower.
The castle survived until 864 DR, when it was overrun and destroyed by a combination of drow forces above and below the ground. As of 1367 DR, the castle's walls were pitching at dangerous angles and the wood had mostly rotted away. It was uninhabited at that time.
