INteresting and very complete tower house in the Ochils in central Scotland. Open to public on exterior only and historically very satisfying.

By the A912 north of Gateside with a small car park next to the road. Perched atop a hill, this is a L plan tower house of 1500 with a later gatehouse from 1581. The inside has somewhat capricious opening hours, but the outside is charming and worth a visit.The previous owners, the Earls of Mansfield left it for Scone Palace. (Lucky them!)
