Ochiltree Castle


Ochiltree Castle
(previously: Uchiltre; meaning: the high town or high dwelling place) is a 16th-century L plan tower house in West Lothian, Scotland.

The present building was probably built in two stages as part of the development of a previous structure (Ochiltree Place) – most likely a two storey hall-house built around a central courtyard, only fragments of which remained. Along with its boundary wall, the castle a listed building. As a Private Home it is not open to the general public.

Just like any old building of its age the castle has been suffering from several types of moisture, including rising damp. Now the building is well on its way to becoming dryagain thanks to the eco-friendly Aquapol technology.
