Innerwick Castle

Castle In Dunbar, Borders

A 14th century ruined castle in the small village of Innerwick built for Scottish royals.

Perched atop a rugged cliff on the eastern coast of Scotland lies Innerwick Castle, an ancient stronghold that oozes tales of battles and bloodshed.

Like most castles near the border it exchanged hands between the Scottish and English, as it was in a strategic location for guarding routes from the south.

Innerwick Castle was built in the 14th century and would have been the stronghold for the Hamilton and Stewart family.

It's only a short walk through the woods, but look out for this style and then sign to get you there.

We also found this really old photo to show you what it would have looked like.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
