  • ID: I19666
  • Name: Humphrey de BARCLAY , Lord of Gairntully, Sir 1
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1095 in Gairntully Castle, Grandtully, Perthshire, Scotland
  • Note:
    Grandtully is a misspelling, so is Grantully Castle a mile upriver which at least is true to pronunciation. The Gaelic garan-tulach, the hill of the thicket, became Gairntully in English and then slithered still further.

    The castle, in private hands, dates from the late 1600s but doubled in size early this century. Its predecessor was nearer the Tay River but the proprietor of Clochfoldich used to pot arrows at his neighbour from the opposite bank. After losing an eye, the laird shifted his castle out of bowshot.
