Trochrie Castle is a ruined 16th century tower house.
The lands of Trochrie were owned by the Earl of Strathearn but some time before 1223 they passed into the Ruthven family when Cecilia, daughter of Gilbert, Earl of Strathearn, married Walter of Ruthven.
Following the Gowrie Conspiracy in 1600 James VI stripped the family of their titles, seized their estates and proscribed the name of Ruthven. The properties annexed to the Crown included “all and whole the lands, earldom, lordship and barony of Gowrie and Scone; all and whole the lands, lordship and barony of RuthvenRuthven, Balerno, Newton, Coulgask, Strathbraan, Glenshee and Trochrie”.
