Insight Tour: Bothwell Castle

Date: 20 November, 10.00am – 12.00pm
Venue: Bothwell Castle, Castle Ave, Uddingston, Bothwell, Glasgow G71 8BL.

Explore a castle hotly fought over during the Wars of Independence. Bothwell Castle, built on a grand scale in the late 1200s, frequently passed back and forth between English and Scottish hands. Although much of the castle has disappeared over time, it is one of the most impressive Scottish medieval strongholds standing today. One of the most striking features remaining is the grand donjon, a circular keep tower that is without parallel in Scotland. On this Insight Tour, climb the scaffolding with our District Architect for a close-up look at the masonry repairs on the Latrine Tower and to hear about the ongoing conservation works.
