OS 6" map (1967)

Carnock House was demolished in 1941 and the site is covered with vegetation. The original building, a simple rectangle with two projecting stair-towers on the N, was erected by Robert Drummond in 1548. Extensive additions were made in the 17th century, starting in 1634. A few fragments of one of the ceilings and some tempera-painted boards are preserved at Kinneil House (NS 982 805); the oak entrance-door is in the Smith Institute, Stirling, and a finial, said to be from here is at Bloemfontein (NS 899 875), Airth.
