Panmure Castle was the ancestral home of the Maule family of Panmure from the 13th century to the 17th century, when it was replaced by Panmure House in the 17th century. It is thought to have been built by Peter Maule around 1224 and was destroyed by Andrew Murray during the Second War of Scottish Independence in 1336.[1][2][3]
