Urquhart Castle held out for David II in 1333
against Edward Balliiol and Edward III of England.
It was captured in 1437 by the Earl of Ross, but
in 1476 was given to the Gordon Earl of Huntly.
In 1509 James IV gave the castle to John Grant
of Freuchie, later in 1515 Urquhart was taken
over by the MacDonalds. The castle held
out against the Jacobites in 1689 but was 
dismantled in 1691 to prevent further use.

Greenan Castle
Greenan Castle
Overlooking the shoreline on the
Firth of Clyde, Greenan is a ruined
 16th century tower house. The property
 passed from the Davidsons to the Kennedys
 in 1588.  In 1602,  Sir Thomas of Kennedy
of Culzean, spent his last night here before being 
murdered by Mure of Auchendrane.  The 
castle has been suggested as the site for
Arthur's Camelot.

Smailholm Tower
Smailholm Tower
Smailholm Tower is a plain 15th century
tower house, but the views from the top
are worth the climb alone!
The property of the Pringle family from 
1408, they were the squires of the
Black Douglas family .  David Pringle was
killed along with his 4 sons at the Battle
of Flodden field in 1513. 
The tower was abandoned about 1700 for
nearby Sandyknowe.  Walter Scott came here
as a boy as his grandfather held Sandyknowe.
