Castle Campbell Looking south across the Burn of Care at Castle Campbell.

The tower house was built in the late fifteenth century and was called Castle Gloom until 1489 when it was renamed Castle Campbell.

Looking down from the tower onto the Hall Range and beyond into the garden.

The Hall Range was constructed c.1500 and would have originally provided additional lodging and public reception.

The narrow hallway in the lower center provided access to the five vaulted cellars beneath the great hall.

Inside the Hall Range looking east.

The castle was burned in 1654 and its use as a residence ended. In 1948 in was given into the care of Historic Scotland.
