Castle Painting

This oil painting is of Castle Campbell which is north of Dollar
overlooking the Ochil Hills. Originally called Castle Gloom parliament
approved its name change in 1490. It initially belonged to the Stewart
Clan but was gifted in marriage.
The walls on the keep are eight foot thick and due to its defensive
position it was nearly impregnable. However the Campbell,
8th Earl of Argyll in 1653 switched his allegiance to Cromwell which
led to the castle being garrisoned by Cromwell's troops and the
following year it was torched. The 8th Earl was hung,drawn and
quartered for treason.
