Tullibardine Castle used to stand on a slight rise around 400 yards (365 metres) north of Tullibardine Chapel, and around 150 yards (137 metres) west of the Tullibardine Chair Tree, a huge ancient oak tree in the Birks of Tullibardine.

In 1446 it was the home of Sir David Murray of Dumbarton, who built Tullibardine Chapel.

The last remains of the castle were removed around 1833, and the stone used to build local farm steadings. Nothing is now visible, the site of the castle is in a field, and the rise on which it stood has now been ploughed away.
