Tour Scotland Airth

Airth Castle, Stirlingshire, Scotland, is steeped in history dating back to the 14th Century. The present castle here incorporates a 15th century tower, known as Wallace's Tower, but it has been extended several times, notably in the 19th century which obscured much of the earlier buildings. The castle was owned by the Bruce family before it passed to the Elphinstones and Dundas families before finally reaching the Grahams. The Graham family became Earls of Airth in 1633. The castle is now a hotel.
