Scope and Content View of Torrisdale Castle, Argyll and Bute Torrisdale Castle was originally a castellated Georgian Gothic house, designed for General Keith Macalister in 1815. In the early 20th century, extensive north and south wings were added to the house, using the same Gothic style. This is a view of the original house. It is three-storeyed with a sunken basement on the west side. It has crenellated and corbelled parapets and turrets at the corners and the entrance is through a large porte-cochère to the left. It is thought James Gillespie Graham (1777-1855), famous for his Gothic architecture, was responsible for the design of Torrisdale Castle. It is almost identical to the design used by Graham for Edmonston Castle in Lanarkshire, also in 1815. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
