Torwood Castle ruin April 2007
Built in 1566 for Sir Alexander Forrester. The ruin was acquired in 1957 by Mr Gordon Millar. He spent the last forty years of his life working on his own to restore the stonework. In November 2002, Torwood Castle estate was given over to Torwood Castle Trust (a registered charity). Torwood Castle is a category A listed building.
I have just completed a short video of Torwood Castle and Tappoch Broch.
