Old Buittle Castle, Near Dalbeattie

Old Buittle Castle
Near Dalbeattie
Dumfries and Galloway

I didn't even realise that I had a photo of the original Buittle castle....home to the Lords Galloway in the 12th and 13th centuries. Well here it is....a distant shot, but the masonry remains of part of the castle can just be seen amongst the trees. The more modern Old Buittle Tower is out of shot to the right of the ruins.

There are some great photos of the remains here, at the Castle UK website.
