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.
D Ure 1793; D MacGibbon and T Ross 1887-92.
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.
