Lochmaben Castle

A fine example of a Z-plan tower house

Lochmaben Castle

The much reduced remains of a royal castle originally built by the English in the 14th century.

The castle was extensively rebuilt during the reign of James IV (1488-1513). Largely dismantled after its capture by James VI in 1588. View exterior only.

The extensive remains of earthworks, including a rectangular ‘peel’ (timber palisaded enclosure) built by Edward I of England, are visible around the masonry castle.
