Minard Castle

The house was reconstructed as a Neo-Tudor pile in 1842 by J.T. Rochead (1814-78) and extended in the 20th century. It was sold to the Forestry Commission in the late 1940s and then to the Holiday Fellowship, a religiously-motivated organisation founded in England in 1913 which promoted healthy holidays, who used it as a hotel for many years. The castle has been a private residence since 1974.
