Statement of Interest

The old castle was designed by William Adam in 1745 with additions by James Playfair of 1790. In 1850 the castle was destroyed by fire and William Burn was commissioned to design a new house in 1854. The south avenue and gates are likely to date from this period.

Buchanan Castle Estate is a designed landscape. The castle and most of the estate lies within Stirling Council Area. Gargowan Lodge, Woodend Lodge and the bridge over the Endrick Water are listed separately with Argyll and Bute Council.
