Lochore

August 30.—The weather scarce permitted us more licence than yesterday, yet we went down to Lochore, and Walter and I perambulated the property, and discussed the necessity of a new road from the south-west, also that of planting some willows along the ditches in the low grounds. Returned to Blair-Adam to dinner.

Lochore, visited by Sir Walter Scott on this summer day in 1826, is in Fife, Scotland.  Per Rampant Scotland, the noble Duncan de Lochore built a castle there in 1160 AD.  The castle is in ruins now.
