Tulloch Castle is supposed to have been built about the 13th century. It was repaired in 1513, and portions added to it in 1675 and 1762. It stood ruinous after a fire about 1850, and was restored in 1923.

Name Book 1876; N Macrae 1923.

Tulloch Castle is a modern house (built 1918-23) incorporating the remains of an early 16th century tower in its SW angle. The basement only of the tower appears to survive. The masonry has been harled but a number of lights and gun-loops are visible. Photo.
