Lochnaw House

The ancestral seat of the Agnews, one-time hereditary sheriffs of Galloway, Lochnaw Castle is situated by Lochnaw Loch in the Rhins of Galloway, 5 miles (8 km) northwest of Stranraer. The original four-storey tower-house dates from the 16th century and was extended both in the 17th and 18th centuries. However the 18th-century extension, together with a Victorian mansion which was built adjacent, have been demolished. Ruins of an older castle, destroyed in 1390, stand on a small islet in the loch.
