Old Menstrie Castle - a Memory of Menstrie.

Menstrie Castle was a great favourite for us young ones, looking at the staircase. I remember an old woman used to live there, I can't remember her name, but she used to chase us when we played there.
We once found old bullets in one of the rooms next to the archway. One friend (Billy Boyle) fell through through the roof and broke his leg, yes those were the days. I was there last year but it is not the same now as the castle has been turned into flats and the old staircase has now gone.
