Perthshire: About 2 miles south of Blairgowrie, on minor roads west of A923, on an island in Stormont Loch.
Ruin or site NO 190421 OS: 53 PH13 9HR
Possible site of castle or residence, remains of which survived in 1843.
Stormont was a property of the Murrays of Gospertie, one of whom, Sir David, had possibly saved James VI’s life at Perth in the Gowrie Conspiracy at Gowrie House in Perth in 1600. He was made Viscount Stormont in 1621 and his family owned Balvaird Castle. The family became Earls of Mansfield in the 18th century, and still own Scone Palace.
