  • This is a great fortress tower. It's well maintained and offers great views of the Scottland Borders countryside. Highly recommended.
  • We stumbled across this wonderful little fort at dusk, after closing time. We spread put and explored. It was wonderful. A very well preserved castle with a violent history going back centuries. Well worth a visit.
  • So worth the hike to get here (or drive if you have a car) A fabulous Border Peel tower - breathtaking 360 degree view
  • Amazing. This is kept up so well and so original. I visit every time I come to Scotland.
  • It's okay, not great, but magic views
