Caerlaverock Castle

Following the latest Scottish Government announcement for mainland Scotland, the castle is now closed. Any visitors with pre-booked tickets from Thursday 24 December up until and inclusive of Sunday 31 January will be automatically refunded. Find out more about our COVID response.

While some areas may be closed, there will be additional interpretation available on-site so you don’t miss out. This may include QR codes so make sure your mobile can read these when visiting.

The epitome of the moated, medieval stronghold, Caerlaverock’s great triangular defences guard the Solway shore. This site has had a turbulent past. In 1300, its 60-strong garrison was defeated by Edward I’s vast English army in a siege.
Despite the castle’s rugged appearance, its walls conceal a stunning Renaissance residence of the 1630s. See bluebells in spring, dragonflies and wildflowers in summer and barnacle
geese in winter.
