County of Perth, -- Parish of Monzievaird and Strowan
The most remarkable
ruin presently existing in these parishes
is an old Castle, situated on the north of the Loch of Monzievaird, on a peninsula, which, being
separated from the mainland by a very narrow isthmus, must in former times have been often converted
into an island, and approached only by a drawbridge, for the purposes of strength and security. *** Sir William
Murray, first Baronet of Ochtertyre, inhabited this Castle for some time about 1650, during the usurpation of Cromwell;
and the spot on which it stood, then received the name of Dry Isle.
