NS3984 : Road through Boturich Estate

3 km from Balloch, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Road through Boturich Estate
Road through Boturich Estate
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).
