Hermitage Castle

Hermitage Castle has a history filled with intrigue, murders, trysts, torture, and treason.

Hermitage Castle

An awesome, eerie ruin, set in a lonely spot, Hermitage Castle has a history filled with intrigue, murder, torture and treason.


  • The castle’s location – in splendid isolation amid Scotland’s wild Border country.
  • The castle’s formidable presence – easily conjuring up in the mind’s eye the bloody struggles for control of the Anglo-Scottish Border that bedevilled the later Middle Ages.
