Craigmillar Castle

Craigmillar Castle lies about three miles to the South of the centre of Edinburgh.  The early records of the castle have not survived, so it is not known by whom or when it was built.

[Modern Athens]

Craigmillar Castle has been a popular destination for excursions by members of Edinburgh Photographic Society.
