Drumelzier Castle

A ruined L-plan tower house of the Scottish Borders, Drumelzier Castle lies a half-mile (1 km) southwest of the hamlet of Drumelzier and 2 miles (3 km) southeast of Broughton. Built in the 16th century, probably incorporating an older structure, three storeys remain, with a square tower built later at one corner. Drumelzier was the property of the Tweedie family until 1632, when it passed to the Hays of Yester, who held it until the mid-19th century. The castle was abandoned for a new house nearby in the 18th century and it had fallen into ruins by 1790.
