Features of Interest
The Monument is to the memory of the 3rd Earl. It was designed by Robert Adam and erected in 1775 by the 3rd Earl's wife shortly after his death.
It is situated in the 3rd Earl's favourite part of the Glen and its romantic inscription clearly shows the affection his wife had for him.
The sundial was erected in 1707 by the 1st Earl and is regarded as one of the most important in Scotland. It has recently been partly renovated.
Behind it on the west wall of the castle is the double headed eagle crest. This family crest of the Boyles appears in several places in the castle and around the estate.
