In the late 13th or early 14th century Malcolm, Earl of Lennox, granted to John, son of Alan de Lany, the lands of Drumchastell which Alan had resigned into the Earl’s hands.
The castle is said to have been burnt by a Buchanan prior to the Battle of Flodden in 1513.
Slight traces of a building remain on a morainic mound.
