History of Broomhall Castle
The older brother had a local mansion called “Middleton Kerse” and when the brothers who were into shipbuilding and wool mills fell out, the younger brother built Broomhall Castle with a tower to look down upon his elder sibling!
Unfortunately in 1906 the mills and shipbuilding business they owned fell into decline and Broomhall Castle was sold to an Italian Riding School who owned it for approximately 4 Years.
In 1910 Broomhall Castle was turned into Clifford Park Boys Prep School with 10 boarders and the school flourished until 1941.
In 1941 the German Schoolmaster took the boys onto the hill “Myreton” behind the Castle for a midnight feast and the Castle along with another grand property in nearby Cumbernauld were set on fire, allowing the German planes to bomb the Clyde shipyards and use the burning buildings to fly to safety out and across the Ochil Hills.
The building was extensively damaged and left empty as a ruin until 1985 when it was rebuilt and brought into use as a nursing home.
In 2003 the current family bought Broomhall Castle with a view to turning it into a small hotel. Extensive works have been carried out including a new restaurant with exposed stonework and a lounge to enjoy your before and after dinner drinks.
