Cramond Tower, Edinburgh

Originally the property of the Bishops of Dunkeld, the estate passed to the Douglases. It was then acquired by an English merchant in 1622 but was later abandoned.

At one time there was a much larger castle here but only the 16th century tower house survives. The ruin was restored and reocupied in 1983. In the 20th century, Cramond village has expanded to become an up-market suburb of Edinburgh. There is the site of a Roman fort near the castle and Roman artefacts have been found there and in the nearby Cramond river.
