The Category A Listed Bannockburn House dates from around 1675 and has many historic connections with well-known characters from the past. Much of the interior décor from as early as the late 1600s is still intact. The house is part of a small country estate. The local community recently raised the cash and bought the house and have lots of exciting plans for its ongoing future use.
Cambusbarron Community Development Trust
Polmaise Castle was built by the Architect William Burn in 1863 and demolished 14th July 1966. Although not a designated historic garden and designed landscape, the castle’s gardens were laid out and retain any remnants of it’s past. In 2019 Cambusbarron Community Development Trust purchased 64 hectares of Polmaise Wood, on the north-east side of Gillies Hill. This will allow the community to have an active role in protecting, managing, and developing the Hill.
