Terpersie Castle
Terpersie Castle
Terpersie is a very attractive small Z-plan castle, hidden away behind a farm in a side glen on the south side of the Correen Hills. It was restored from an almost complete ruin within the last 20 years or so. The last Gordon of Terpersie was "out" during the rebellion of 1745, and he hid in the Correen Hills above his house after the defeat at Culloden until eventually he was caught by the searching government troops. They did not at first realise who they had caught, thinking him just a vagrant, until he was brought down to Terpersie where his children on seeing him ran towards him with cries of "Daddy Daddy"!! He was taken to Carlisle and hung!
