Balcomie Castle, East of Crail, Scotland. The remains of a large mansion of the later 16th century, to which a private, modern house with offices and farmstead has been attached. Sibbald states that from Malcolm IV (1153-65) to James II (1437-60) the castle belonged to the Hays, then the Leslies and latterly the Learmonths. A stone bearing the date 1602 found in the barn floor by the tenant is probably that missing from between the two armorial panels on the courtyard gateway.
