Caerlaverock Castle details...

With its moat, twin towered gatehouse and imposing battlements this is the epitome of a medieval stronghold.

The castle’s turbulent history owes much to its proximity to England which brought it into border conflicts.

Visitors can enjoy a siege warfare exhibition, a children’s adventure park and a nature trail.
