(NS 62014 62334) Farme Castle (NR)

OS 6" map, (1968)

Farme is a simple three-storeyed keep, apparently built in the 15th century, now incorporated in a modern mansion. The estate has belonged to the Stewarts, Crawfords, and others, but it is not known by whom the castle was built.

Farme Castle (information from Miss Robertson, tenant, Farme Castle) is a typical 15th century keep, as described above. Its walls, of dressed masonry, are in a fair state of preservation. It is still in use as a residence, with relatively modern additions in castellated style on the N and E.
