Castle Levan (Gourock) for sale

Castle Levan occupies a strong site on a ravine on the Clyde estuary at Gourock

It appears to date from two periods; a tower of the 15th century to which was added a larger in the 16th. The walls are thick, the windows small and the parapet is carried on attractive chequered corbelling. It is a fine example of its period.
