Carnock House, Airth, was demolished in 1938. Only its old oak door survives. Actually the old oak door was taken from the “Old Carnock” castle when “New Carnock” House was built by the King’s Master Mason in the 16th century. Just imagine how many interesting folk with forgotten lives may have passed through this old door to Carnock!
The Carnock Door. Next time you go to the Stirling Smith gallery have a look at it. Touch it, ‘feel’ the time, and let your imagination go!
As ever, I took the teddy “Hale Bopp” and the mouse “The Pawky Duchess of Lost” on my recent trip to Carnock. We had a braw adventure through an imaginary gateway to oor Saturday.
