Bothwell Castle

Explore a castle hotly fought over during the Wars of Independence. Bothwell Castle, built on a grand scale in the late 1200s, frequently passed back and forth between English and Scottish hands. 

Although much of the castle has disappeared over time, it is one of the most impressive Scottish medieval strongholds standing today. One of the most striking features remaining is the grand donjon, a circular keep tower that is without parallel in Scotland.

On this Insight Tour, climb the scaffolding with our District Architect for an close-up look at the masonry repairs on the Latrine Tower and to hear about the ongoing conservation works.

Additional Information: Individuals will be provided with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in the form of a hard hat, high visability vest and steel toe cap boots. Please inform us of your shoe size when booking.

This tour takes place on scaffolding that is accessible by stairs only. Please get in touch if you require further information about the access limitations of this event.

Event suitable for ages 16+
