About Bothwell Castle
Explore a castle hotly fought over during the Wars of Independence with England. Bothwell Castle, built on a grand scale in the late 1200s, frequently passed back and forth between English and Scottish hands.
Such hostility – in particular Edward I’s great siege of 1301 – meant the castle was never completed to its original plan. Yet, with its imposing donjon, it’s one of Scotland’s most impressive medieval strongholds standing today.
