There has been a castle here since at least the 1100s and probably much earlier. The first written record is from 1110, when king Alexander I dedicated a chapel at the castle.

Where Tesco is now sited (in Wallace Street) used to be in the 50/60s Fergusons Coal Merchant Yard.Next door to them was the Rossleigh Garage that sold /repaired Rootes Group(Standard,

Triumph,Hillman,Singer,Sunbeam) and Jaguar vehicles.

Further up the road was the cattle market.
