MacLellan's Castle


Castle Street, Kirkcudbright, Kirkcudbrightshire, DG6 4JD

    Visit this impressive townhouse and discover a 16th century family home.

    The remains of this late 16th century house show how architecture changed from the heavily defended tower house to a new, more domestic scale. Sir Thomas MacLellan of Bombie built the castle in 1582 to function as a grand family home. Head ‘below stairs’ into the dark vaults to get a sense of the working conditions of family servants and look out for the Laird’s Lug’, a secret spy hole behind the great hall fireplace, from which the laird could eavesdrop on his guests.
