Caerlaverock Castle

Dumfries, Dumfries and Galloway

Caerlaverock Castle was attacked and held by the English during the Wars of Scottish Independence. In 1640 the castle was besieged for the last time and was subsequently abandoned. Although demolished and rebuilt several times, the castle retains the distinctive triangular plan first laid out in the 13th century.

After exploring the castle you can enjoy delicious home baking and freshly ground coffee in the castle’s tearoom which is open during the summer and at weekends in the winter.
