New Statl. [Statistical] Account
040 "The Castle of Bolshan which as Monipenny's Scottish Chronicle tells us in 1612, was Lord Ogilvy's special residence has passed away with the other monumnets of feudal grandeur. The Cemetery and site of the Chapel were subjected to the plough before 1767. The last remains of the Castle were removed soon after, and now, for a long while, there has been no other remembrances of the ancient glory of the place, than the peculiar appearance of the soil a little to the west of the present farm house" Beachamp or Balshan.
New Statistical Account
The site of this Castle is adopted upon the two first authorities quoted. Some appearance in the soil is now faintly perceptible at times in the course of cultivation as stated by Mr Goodlet Farmer of Beauchamp.
