    Battle re-enactment and camp at Caerlaverock Castle. Caerlaverock Castle came under a prolonged and bitter siege in 1640 from a Covenanter army. On Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th July, visitors are invited to go back in time to meet the covenanters, and hear how they fought to the siege’s bitter end. Loyal to Charles I, Lord Maxwell held out against the Covenanters for 13 weeks before surrendering. During the siege, the south curtain wall was demolished so the castle could never again be used as a place of defence.
