  • Nice wee ruined castle. Easy to access along a grass path. Nice and tranquil.
  • A great example of how the gentry had to fortify their homes to defend against the Border Reivers. Despite being largely ruined, it does allow you to understand the construction and strata in its history. It's worth stopping at if you're passing as it's free (managed by English Heritage).

  • Fantastic walks and views. Interesting history.
  • Lovely area fantastic views
