Gourock Castle Collection

Gourock Castle had a relatively short life span. It was built in 1840 and demolished in 1896 a mere 56 years later, but during that time there were 7 owners, none of whom stayed for any great length of time and all of whom had strange stories to tell.

The building occupied the most prominent position in the town and was more of a Victorian folly than a castle proper and the standing stone “Granny Kempock” was only a short distance away.

    Hi, would it be possible to buy a print of one of the Gourock Castle pictures?

      Hi David,
      The pictures are not mine to sell, I either have permission or they are time lapsed. You are of course welcome to enjoy those I have posted.
      All the best.
