Tour Scotland Video May Balhousie Castle Perth Perthshire



Tour Scotland May video of Balhousie Castle on ancestry visit to Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. This Scottish castle is the Regimental Headquarters and Museum of The Black Watch. The castle, located on Hay Street, originally a few hundred metres north of the medieval town, dates to 1631, though its origins are believed to go back a further three hundred years. It originally served as the seat of the Earls of Kinnoull, and stood within a walled enclosure on a terrace overlooking the North Inch Park. After falling into neglect in the early 19th century, the Castle was rebuilt, and extensively remodelled on a larger scale in 1862 in the Baronial style by the architect David Smart. In 1962, the Castle became the Regimental Headquarters and Museum of The Black Watch.
