Hallyards Castle (West Lothian) - Past & Present

Hallyards Castle (West Lothian)

Hallyards Castle, now but a few stones

Hallyards Castle was a mid-17th C mansion with crow stepped gables and a stair turret projecting from one side. One of the corners was cut away in a curious fashion. A date above a window read 1630. It was enclosed by a courtyard.

It was ruinous in the late 19th C and had largely collapsed by the start of the next.

The sole remains are a few scattered stones near a sewage works not far from Edinburgh Airport, near the runway.

Another sad loss...
