Be sure to ask your hosts if there are any exciting events happening at the castles in their area

Craignethan Castle

Craignethan Castle is situated near Hamilton on the banks of the Nethan River and was the last private stronghold built in Scotland. The walls and keep are largely intact, possibly testament to its unique structure…the result of the architects previous successes at Linlithgow Palace and Stirling castle. It is believed that Craignethan was the inspiration for Sir Walter Scotts ‘Tilletudlem’ in his novel ‘Old Morality’.
