Castle Kennedy, Dumfries and Galloway.
There was some form of fortification on the site of Castle Kennedy since at least the fifteenth century for it was mentioned in a record dated 1482. Little is known about this structure and it was either demolished or incorporated into a new Tower House that was built in 1607. This is the structure visible today but, when constructed, it was situated on an island in Loch Inch. Subsequent drainage now means the castle is now found on a neck of land whilst the water itself is two separate and distinct bodies; White and Black Lochs.
The four-storey Tower House was laid out in a rectangular configuration with additional wings being added later. The main block consisted of a single chamber at each level with the accommodation within the two wings. Disaster struck the castle in 1716 when it was destroyed by fire.
