Descriptive Gazetteer Entry for Castlecluggy

Castlecluggy, a ruined fortalice in Monzievaird and Strowan parish, Perthshire, on a peninsula at the N end of Monzievaird Loch. Long defended by a fosse with a drawbridge, it seems to have been very strong and of considerable extent, but is now represented by only a low square tower, with walls 5 or 6 feet thick and as hard as iron. According to Rymer's Fœdera, Malise, Earl of Strathearn, was here besieged about 1306 by Robert Bruce.
