Dirleton Castle and Garden

Tease out the hints of a long and eventful history in these well-preserved ruins. Cross the deep moat guarded by high walls and an imposing tower, glancing up at the 'murder hole' above your head. Look for the vaulted dome inside the 1249 tower, the grim prison and pit and the 1550s 'beehive' dovecot. Discover stories of sieges, nobility and witchcraft.

Dirleton is also celebrated for the beauty of its grounds. You can enjoy the arts and crafts garden, at its peak in the summer, and the Victorian formal garden, particularly impressive in the early autumn.
