Airth Castle

There was an earlier castle here in the days of William Wallace and during his efforts to free Scotland Wallace was forced to rescue his uncle from this early Airth Castle. The present castle here incorporates a 15th century tower, known as Wallace's Tower, but it has been extended several times, notably in the 19th century which obscured much of the earlier buildings.

The castle was owned by a Bruce family before it passed to the Elphinstones and Dundas families before finally reaching the Grahams. The Graham family became Earls of Airth in 1633.

The castle is now a hotel.
