Altrieve (site of)
Altrieve is marked as Eltrief on Blaeu’s mid-17th century map but the site is now occupied by a farmhouse which was once the home of James Hogg. The National Library of Scotland conflates Altrieve with the castle named Aldtrouß on Blaeu’s map however Altrieve is also shown on the same map as Eltrief so it seems that these were two distinct castles.
