Ruins of Whitefield Castle

Whitefield Castle is a ruined L-plan tower-house along Strath Ardle, Perth and Kinross, Scotland.

History[edit]

Built in the 12th century by Malcolm Canmore as a hunting lodge, it was expanded in 1577 by the Spalding family. It is now ruinous.

The castle also has a Ley tunnel legend, a tradition often found associated with ancient residences. This tunnel was said to link up with Ashintully Castle.
