Glassford Castle (site of)
Glassford Castle was a property of the Glasford family in the 13th century but nothing of it now remains.
Towards the end of the 13th century Robert Croc, Lord of Crookston and Darnley, is said to have sold Crookston Castle to the Glasfords, although they may have bought it from John de Annesley early in the 14th century who had bought it from Croc.
Whatever the true sequence, Adam of Glasferth was in possession of the lands of Crukysfu in 1330 when Robert, 7th High Steward of Scotland (the future Robert II), granted licence to his cousin, Sir Alan Stewart of Dreghorn, to purchase heritably the same lands.
