Craiglockhart Castle

A ruined tower in SW Edinburgh, Craiglockhart Castle is located on the northern margin of Napier University's Craiglockhart Campus, 2½ miles (4 km) southwest of the city centre. Most likely built by the Kincaid family in the 12th Century, this square keep became the property of the Lockharts of Lee. The ivy-covered ruin now comprises just two of the original four storeys, with the doorway and windows infilled.
