Balthayock  Perthshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Balthayock like this:

Balthayock, a detached section of Kinnoul parish, Perthshire. Lying ½ mile E of the main body of the parish, it has an extreme length from NW to SE of 27/8 miles, and varies in breadth from 5 furlongs to 1 mile. Balthayock House in the S, 3 miles E of Perth, dates partly from 1578, partly from some two centuries earlier; it is the seat of Wm. Lowson, Esq. Balthayock Castle, close by, is the ruin of an oblong tower, supposed to have belonged to the Knights Templars.

The location is that of Balthayock Castle.
