Craigend Castle

Craigend Castle which is a wonderful ruin being slowly re-claimed by nature. I have mixed feelings about the fact nothing is being done with it; however I fear the damage has already been done and removing the trees would only make the structure less sound. And even though it is surrounded by barbed wire and heras fencing it is still very beautiful.
