The remains of Cruivie Castle, which is of late 15th century date, are situated on a rock outcrop, standing about 20' above its immediate surroundings with indications of a ditch, or a quarry from which the stone to build the castle was taken. It is L-shaped on plan, and the walls, mainly large blocks of whin rubble, still stand over 20' high. The 'mansion' of Cruivie is mentioned in 1509, and the 'tower' of Cruivie occurs in 1539/40, when it was granted to Henry Ramsay by the King.
