Craignethan Castle

Luis and I decided to go check out another castle this weekend. So...I packed the picnic this time, and off we went to Craignethan Castle. It was a beautiful drive on the way there and we enjoyed the countryside. We didn't know what we might find when we got to this castle, but what we found was someone actually still lives in a part of it!!! WOW!! A castle built in the 16th century still has tenants!

This is the part of the castle that is still being lived in!!

Built in the first half of the 16th century, Craignethan is recognised as an excellent early example of a sophisticated artillery fortification, although its defences were never fully tested. The castle is notable as the last purpose-built fortress to be constructed in Scotland.
The castle is surounded by the coutryside


  1. You have no idea how much I want to be there ...

  2. I would LOVE to be there! :D
