Caerlaverock Castle

Caerlaverock Castle, Dumfries and Galloway

With its moat, twin towered gatehouse and imposing battlements, Caerlaverock Castle, Dumfries in southern Scotland is the epitome of the 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.

The shop and cafe are open throughout the year.
