(NN 7558 0367) Kilbryde Castle (NR).

OS 6" map, (1958).

Kilbryde Castle was entirely remodelled and enlarged in 1877-8. Before that date it was surrounded with enclosing walls and was of the L-plan. It is usually stated to have been built about 1460 by Sir James Graham but this is manifestly too early a date by a century at least. There was only one entrance door at the foot of the staircase, as was usual in the seventeenth century.

D MacGibbon and T Ross 1892.

Kilbryde Castle is entirely modern. The only trace of the original structure (Information from Mr J Fletcher, Kilbryde Castle Gardens, Nr Dunblane) is a course of rough stone-work along the base of the south and east sides of the existing mansion.

Visited by OS (RD) 8 November 1968.
