The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) although listing the castle as Horsburgh Castle, states that "The name is undoubtedly Horsbrugh Castle confirmed by spelling of local farm name etc., also plaque on wall of ruins of castle stating: A memorial to RT Hon Baroness Horsbrugh of Horsbrugh 1889-1969." The site is more commonly known as Horsburgh Castle by many sources.
