This attractive, illustrated guide tells the history of Elcho Castle, and explains the origins of the castle’s owners.
Elcho is a wonderfully preserved tower house, a fashionable style of castle unique to the 1400-1500s.
This remarkable castle isn’t reported to have seen any bloodshed, and served as a retreat.
The castle was built and is still owned by the Wemyss family. It’s beautifully preserved, despite having not been inhabited for around 200 years.
