Ogilface Castle


Local tradition claims that the Covenanters used the ruins as a place of refuge and as a hideout. Little more is known about who used it, or when this happened.

The old Ordnance Survey map shown to the left idicates its location. Note: the village of Woodend on the map no longer exists.
