Statement of Interest

Cloncaird Castle, which stands on a precipitous slope alongside the Kelsie Burn, was built around a 16th century core in 1814 for Henry Ritchie of Craiton and Busbie. Ritchie was succeeded by his second son William Wallace in 1843 and it remained in the Wallace family until sold in 1905 to Mrs Dubs, the widow of an industrialist. Colonel Wallace, who had sold the castle to Mrs Dubs, went on to marry her in 1908, reinstating himself as a result. Most of the interior remodeling of the castle is thought to date to the renovations by Mrs Dubs around this time. This included the introduction of fine ornate plasterwork, one plaque of which is signed by W Hubert Paton. On Mrs Dubs death in 1947 the castle became aconvalescent home, run by the local authority. It was returned to private residential use in the later 20th century.
