Lochmaben Castle

The castle is in a strategic position due to the forest and marsh that surrounds this area of Annandale.  Indeed it was, for many years, the gateway to Galloway and Lothian, now it is mostly a ruin, with just a few walls bravely remaining standing, sitting on the edge of Lochmaben, and is more likely to be passed by fishermen on their way down to the loch than have anyone else visit it.
