The Old Oak at Torwood Castle

Beside Torwood Castle, in a field, stands this old Oak. It is still alive, but its trunk is split at the base and it leans heavily. I call this picture "The Weight of Experience".

I've been trying to find online if this tree is notable as there are records kept of old trees around the country. Alas, I've not been able to find anything on it, so as far as I know, this photo is the only record of the tree that exists. I always wonder how long this tree has stood beside the castle and what history it shares.
