Claypotts Castle

An outstanding example of 16th-century Scottish architecture

Claypotts Castle

An outstanding example of 16th-century Scottish architecture, which is both intact and hardly altered.

The castle owes its striking appearance to asymmetrical square garrett chambers corbelled out over two circular towers at diagonally opposite corners.

Built by John Strachan between 1569 and 1588, and later owned by ‘Bonnie Dundee’, John Graham of Claverhouse, it was inhabited into the 19th century.
