Brief description of site
The late 16th-century Baltersan Castle is now a ruined shell with no remaining planting. It is recorded as having gardens, orchards, parkland and woodland in the 17th century but was abandoned by the mid-18th century.
The current owner has negotiated a Historic Scotland grant package for the next purchaser to restore the castle and plant new gardens, including an orchard.
