Old Photograph Round Pond Castle Kennedy Scotland

Old photograph of the round pond at Castle Kennedy located 3 miles East of Stranraer, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. The ruins of Castle Kennedy can be seen in the distance. Castle Kennedy was built in 1607 as a mansion house by the Earl of Cassilis, on the site of an older castle. It was acquired in 1677 by Sir John Dalrymple, later the Earl of Stair, though the house burned down in 1716. The 2nd Earl retained the ruin as a focal point for new formal gardens laid out in the 1730s.
