Castle Stewart
(Calcruchie)

A former stronghold of the Stewarts in Dumfries and Galloway, Castle Stewart lies just west of the River Cree, 3 miles (5 km) northwest of Newton Stewart. It was named after Colonel William Stewart who made a fortune as a mercenary soldier fighting under Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden. On his return to Scotland he bought the estate which was then called Calcruchie.
