Menstrie Castle
Menstrie Castle is one of the five historical sites in the Clackmannanshire Tower Trail. It was built c.1560 as a manor house by the Alexander family, and was the birthplace of Sir William Alexander, a scholar and poet, who impressed King James VI with his learning. Menstrie Castle was occupied by the Abercrombie family from 1719 to 1924. By 1951 it was derelict. Restoration took place between 1957 and 1964. Menstrie Castle is a Category A listed building.
