History of Rowallan Castle

Said to have been built in the 13th century, Rowallan was the birth place of Elizabeth Muir, the first wife of Robert II of Scotland. The Muir family counts many famous writers, historians, and composers in their family. Rowallan Castle then became home to the Campbells of Loudoun, in whose hands it remained until the 19th century, when a new Rowallan was built on the estate.
