Caerlaverock Castle

This site is currently closed as a precautionary measure while we undertake site inspections. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Find out more about our conservation work: https://www.historicenvironment.scot/about-us/news/site-access-update/.

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.
