CLOSEBURN CASTLE

Kirkpatrick´s Ancestral Home

Welcome to Closeburn Castle

This defense tower, ancestral home of the Kirkpatrick family since 1232 when the lands were granted to Ivone de Kirkpatick by Alexander II, is the oldest inhabited tower house in Scotland. Owned by the Kirkpatrick family for centuries the state was sold out of the family in 1783 by James Kirkpatrick to Reverend James Stuart-Menteth, until 1981 when Luis Kirkpatrick brought the Castle back to the family. His son Patricio is the owner currently.

The Castle is 14.5m by 10.5 m (46ft by 33ft 9in) and rises 15m (52ft) to the top. The walls are 3m (7ft 6in) thick reduced to 2.2m (6ft 6in) further up.
