Castle Clanyard

Castle Clanyard lies a half-mile (1 km) southeast of Clanyard Bay on the southwest coast of the Rinns of Galloway. Only parts of the west gable and north wall survive from what was once a great L-plan tower house. Built in the 16th C. by the Gordons of Kenmure, Castle Clanyard was abandoned by 1684.
