  • Kids loved exploring the Castle. It is a ruin and it looks like some parts could fall down at any minute so not sure how safe it is.  more »
  • Newark Castle is a ruin located just outside the town of St Monans. The construction on the site probably dates back to the 13th century when the Scottish King Alexander III, spent part of his childhood. By this time, the site has gone through several stages of reconstruction, and it is very likely that the ruins currently visible are the remains of buildings constructed under the ownership of David Leslie in the 17th century and the family Sandilands, who owned the Castle Since the 15th century, when it obtained the property through a wedding. Leslie was a prominent figure in the English and Scottish civil wars, becoming Lord Newark after the wars. The Castle has been known by several names, including Inverie, St Monans and St Monance.

  • Hear of this place from a friend. Got lost for a few minutes but found it eventually. Great place for photos, our visiting friends loved it. Great scenery. Very windy on the day we went. Great spot for a cheeky climb too:)
  • So cool, you can climb all over it and the wind was so strong ! Loved it
  • Nice place nice views nice peoples 5 stars
  • Honestly - not that much to see here. Looks like most of this ruin has been cordoned off!
  • Interesting looking ruin...but not great for dogs as it is on a cliff edge, best to get them on the lead.
