Tour Balgonie Castle Fife Scotland

Tour Balgonie Castle, Fife, Scotland. The first day of a new tour of Scotland. Took my guests on a visit to this Scotish castle, or more correctly, 15th century Scottish tower house on the south bank of the River Leven one mile to the South East of Markinch in the Kingdom of Fife.

Associated with the Sibbald and Lundy families and once occupied by Rob Roy Macgregor, its most famous owner was the covenanting General Sir Alexander Leslie who fought with Gustavus Adolphus in the Thirty Years War. He bought the estate in 1635 six years before being created 1st Earl of Leven and Lord Balgonie. Restoration of the tower began in the late 1970s.
