BOTHAL CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

The castle is situated at the end of a natural spur with steep slopes on all sides except the north. A castle was first built here in circa 1150 and in 1343 a licence to crenellate was granted to Sir Robert de Ogle. The gate tower and fragments of curtain wall date to this period. The castle was extensively restored in the last decade of the 19th century. The castle is in an excellent state of repair and is used as a private residence and as offices by the agent of the Duke of Portland.
