This medieval tower house was built around 1500 by Ninian Adair of Kilhurst, one of the most powerful Lairds of Wigtownshire.
Enjoy a fantastic day out watching the videos and reconstructions which tell the story of the medieval landowners who built and lived in the castle. You'll also learn about the Government troops who used the castle as their headquarters during the Killing Times in the 1680s and the criminals and debtors imprisoned in the castle during the 19th century. There is also an excellent activity room for families and children.
