TULLOKYNE CASTLE

Rated 0 out of 5

Tullokyne Castle is a five storey tower house believed to have been built in the 16th century.

It is said that the castle is to have been built by two sisters who built their castles close together so that they could rant to each other from their own windows. As a result, Tullokyne is also referred to as ‘The Hag’s Castle’.

It was recorded as being held by Murtagh O’Connor in 1574. In 1839, it was said that a great storm knocked the other castle while causing considerable damage to Tullokyne. The castle now lies in ruins with only the west wall standing to it’s original height.
