Torwood Castle (1)

Torwood Castle, also known as Torwoodhead Castle, is a handsome and commodious fortalice of the second half of the 16th century, long ruinous but with the main features surviving - and very slowly undergoing restoration! It stands on high ground about two miles north of Larbert, half a mile west of the old A9 and practically astride an old Roman road. The country around contains the scant remains of the historic and ancient Tor Wood, a forest that once covered most of the area between Stirling and Falkirk, and was well known as the haunt of robbers and other broken men!
