Road through Boturich Estate
Road through Boturich Estate, taken 5 years ago
The buildings of Meikle Boturich are in the middle distance, among the trees. The name Boturich, applied to this estate, is stressed on the second syllable: "bo-TURR-och".

A variety of spellings can be found in old documents. An unusual one, Butterwick, can be seen on a map at the beginning of David Ure's book "General View of the Agriculture in the County of Dumbarton" (1794). The Pont/Blaeu map of the Lennox (based on surveys in the 1580s-90s, and published in 1654) has "Pitturichs", while Roy's Military Survey of Scotland shows the "ruins of Botterich Castle". The present-day Boturich Castle (NS3884 : Boturich Castle Loch Lomond) was built on the same site; see LinkExternal link (at Canmore).

In the background, on the left, is a view into Glen Finlas (NS3289).
