EnergyLogic is proud to feature several waste oil global installs of our patented Waste Oil products in unique locations around the world. The third in the series is Shieldhill Castle, an incredible venue for special occasions, business conferences, overnight stays in Biggar, and fancy dinner dates. Originally built in 1199, Shieldhill Castle is a masterpiece of history and architecture. The Chancellor family (one of the oldest families in the area) came from France during the Norman Conquest and resided in Shieldhill Castle for over 750 years. Today, the Castle is a hotel, restaurant, and highly sought-after event venue.
History of the Castle
Shieldhill Castle exudes rich history and English culture, from the engraved stone shields to the original stone and lock front door. The Chancellors added to the Castle and modified it over the years, reroofing the old tower around 1568 and adding access by the round tower on the north side sometime in the late 16th century. In 1820, major alterations occurred at the Castle to form the styling guests see today.
In the 19th century, inhabitants further modernized the building. However, it retains most of its original components. Visit the Castle and see the original door, above which are engraved stones with shields and the letters “I.H.S.” and “M.A.” The initials belong to James Chancellor and Margaret Levingston of the late 17th century. The shield on the left is from the 15th century, bearing the Chancellor family crest. The origin of the shield on the right remains a mystery.
Events and Activities at Shieldhill Castle
This ancient home, castle, and now hotel uses EnergyLogic’s 500B waste oil boiler to heat water in multiple areas throughout the enormous castle at once. The castle can use waste oil from its kitchens and vehicles to fuel the boiler, which operates excellently using waste motor oil, vegetable oil, and other types of waste oil. Thanks to this high-efficiency EL product, Shieldhill Castle can provide piping hot water in all restrooms, kitchens, and for appliances without costing a fortune in energy bills.
