03 Sep Castlecary, Stirlingshire
This castle is located in Stirlingshire, it is worth stopping on any tours of Scotland.
It is a nice 15th century tower-house. The East wing, or hall-house, was added in the 17th century. Overall, it’s a very nice property.
The castle is still occupied, with a restored and modernized interior.
What is more interesting is that it appears that the materials for building the castle came from the remains of an old Roman fort.
The fort stood beside Antonius’ Wall.
The fort was also an Agricolan station (the conquest of Britain continued under command of Gnaeus Julius Agricola (77–84), who expanded the Roman Empire as far as Caledonia).
