the newer old homestead

So after the family (John Wallace's desendants) left Castle Craigie to disintegrate they got a new castle that they named Newton Castle. I can't find much info on Newton castle except that it doesn't even have ruins anymore... perhaps it was burnt down like a few of great-grandpa's kitchens (Hey Mom, was that great-grandpa a Wallace?) Then the family moved into a much bigger and posh place; Cragie House.

It looks like the heating is probably a little better than the old place. How is it we are related to people who had/have a castle like this? Where's my castle? Trust fund anybody? Ach! There are a ton of Wallace's we'd probably end up with about ten pounds sterling each... Sigh.
