Castle Leslie stands on the site of an earlier castle and was designed by Charles Lanyon and W.H. Lynn in 1870 for John Leslie MP. Designed in the Scottisdh baronial style, the house presents a rather dour and austere fa├žade and is sited in such a way so as to mask the gardens to the visitor. The garden front is relieved by an Itanate Renaissance cloister which links the main house to a single storey wing containing the Library and Billiard Room. In contrast to the exterior by Lynn, the interior shows the hands of Lanyon and Leslie himself through its strong Italian Renaissance feel.
