Lochleven Castle is the home of Lady Agnes Leslie and her husband William Douglas, 6th Earl of Morton.

Wikipedia
Loch Leven Castle is a ruined castle on an island in Loch Leven, in the Perth and Kinross local authority area of Scotland. Possibly built around 1300, the castle saw military action during the Wars of Scottish Independence (1296–1357). In the later 14th century the castle was granted to William Douglas, 1st Earl of Douglas, and remained in Douglas hands for the next 300 years
