Taymouth Castle

Region : Perthshire
Location :  Taymouth Castle is situated just north-east of the village of Kenmore
Details : The present building largely dates from the 19th century, however Taymouth stands on the site of the ancient Balloch Castle which was built in 1550 for Sir Colin Campbell of Glenorchy. Towards the end of the 17th century the family fell on hard times but by the turn of the century the family fortunes had sufficiently improved to finance the erection of Taymouth Castle. The castle therefore may be described as being built between 1801 and 1842 incorporating a 16th century tower house

Paranormal Phenomena : The sound of phantom footsteps, it is alleged, can be heard around the castle
