Wigtownshire - Castle
Castle Kennedy is a village three miles east of Stranraer in
Inch, Wigtownshire, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.
There is a castle there - indeed there are two. Castle Kennedy
itself, built in 1607, was burned down in 1716 and remains a ruin to
Prior to the Reformation the two lochs, Black Loch and White Loch,
were together known as Loch Crindil / Crindill. A small island in
the White Loch ( Innysmacrinyl AD1415 ) gave the parish the name
'the Inch or Inche or Insche' (Gaelic innis) otherwise 'island'.
The owners decided to build Lochinch Castle, Inch Parish, in 1864 as
a replacement rather than restoring the old castle.
The grounds of the castle, which were laid out in the 1730s by John
Dalrymple, 2nd Earl of Stair, are open to the public. Because of the
Gulf Stream and the proximity of the sea on two sides, the gardens
enjoy a mild climate which permits the cultivation of rhododendrons
and other plants not often seen in Scotland.
