  Carsluith Castle
by stevezero

Carsluith Castle is a well preserved magnificent ruin of a towerhouse of 16th century date. The 18th century range of outbuildings are still in use by the farmer. This is in fact how the old estate functioned as such towerhouses were often linked to their outbuildings.
One of the owners of the castle was the last abbot of nearby Sweetheart Abbey.
