Caerlaverock Castle, Scotland

Caerlaverock Castle as we see it here dates from the 13th Century, there was an earlier Castle just a few hundred yards to the south of the present site. It is thought that the 1st castle was abandoned because of its closeness to the Solway Marshes.

The three sided shield shaped Caerlaverock we know today was built by the Maxwell family. Surrounded by a deep moat and ramparts it is surely one of the most stunning medieval castles in Scotland.

Situation:  8 miles south of Dumfries on the B725 it is well worth a visit.
