Caerlaverock Castle Souvenir Guide

Front cover of Caerlaverock Castle guidebook

An official souvenir guide which paints a colourful picture of this Maxwell Clan stronghold.

Caerlaverock Castle’s design is both curious and astonishingly beautiful. A unique triangular construction surrounded by a placid moat makes this medieval stronghold a treat to behold.

The castle is close to the English border, which brought it under siege many times. Despite numerous partial demolitions, the original triangular plan has stood the test of time.

In this engaging and colourful guide, you can follow the story of the castle through numerous developments.

A Caerlaverock Castle guide leaflet is also available in French & German and costs £1.
