Auchenbathie  Renfrewshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Auchenbathie like this:

Auchenbathie, a barony in the SE of Lochwinnoch parish, Renfrewshire, contiguous to Ayrshire, 3½ miles ESE of Lochwinnoch town. It belonged to the Wallaces of Elderslie; it is mentioned by Blind Harry as one of the places which Malcolm Wallace, the father of Sir William Wallace, ` had in heritage; ' and it has remains of a small ancient castle, called Anchenbathie Tower. Another Auchenbathie is in the neighbourhood, and, as having belonged to another family than the Wallaces, is called Anchenbathie Blair.

The location is that of Auchenbathie Tower.
