Highlights

  • The location – dramatically set beside a winding in the River Clyde.
  • The 13th-century donjon – without parallel in Scotland.
  • The 13th-century prison tower – a good example of the grimness of medieval prison life.
  • The 14th-century great hall and chapel – impressive survivals from the period of the Black Douglases.
