Triangular castle in scotland

Caerlaverock castle, Scotland

Caerlaverock castle, Scotland

The amazing Caerlaverock Castle is a triangular castle first constructed in the 13th century. It is situated on the southern coast of Scotland.  It was surrounded by the English during the battles of Scottish Independence, and underwent numerous partial destructions and renewals over the 14th and 15th centuries.  The Maxwells were created Earls of Nithsdale, and built a new lodging within the walls, described as among “the most ambitious early classical domestic architecture in Scotland”. While demolished and restructured a number of times, the castle preserves the unique triangular plan first laid out in the 13th century. Caerlaverock Castle was constructed to organize trade in early times. Today, the castle is in the care of Historic Scotland and is a popular tourist attraction. It is defended as a scheduled monument, and as a category A listed building.
I like the structure and amazing design of this castle. I hope you will also like it.
