Caerlaverock Castle

The castle grounds, shop and toilets are open (the castle remains closed) and we are delighted to welcome you back. No booking currently required and while the castle is closed there is no admission charge. 

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.
