In 1507, James IV commanded James Murray (his private secretary) to build himself a fortified house at Ballencrieff.

Ballencrieff Castle was destroyed in or around 1545 but was rebuilt in 1586. In 1868 the property accidentally burnt down.

Restoration began in 1992 by Peter Gillies and his partner Lin Dalgleish, and was completed in summer 1997.
