The old Scottish tower house, Balloch Castle, built about 1550 by Sir Colin Campbell, was remodelled c.1733 by William Adam who added two flanking pavilions linked to the main block. Of all this only Adam's west wing remains under later remodellings. The centre block of the present building dates from 1806-10.
