Explore the high-vaulted halls and gloomy prison of this powerful medieval stronghold, perched on a hill above the village. The main tower was built in the 1370s by Robert II – the first monarch of the long Stewart dynasty – to mark his succession to the throne. It stands on the site of at least two earlier castles as well as Bronze Age and Iron Age remains.
