The Village of Chryston - North Lanarkshire - Scotland
GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF HOUSE. As mentioned before, Bedlay Castle is built on the solid rock of a dyke running from West to East and falls away sharply to the North and West. The Southern face, built up and forming the terrace overlooking a meadow, faces the century old New Drive, the former approach being from the East, and the old Gatehouse which is still in existence is located about a mile from the Castle. South West Elevation When it was first built, Bedlay seems to have been something of a landmark commanding a good view of the valley from North and South and to the hills away to the West. Early sketches show that there were only a few scattered trees in these directions, but rising ground to the Eastward was thickly wooded then as it is today. Trees have since grown up to North and West quite close to the House and only the South exposure which fronts a small meadow enclosed by very old trees is open.
