#52 Comlongon Castle
Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland
This is NOT an official Lego site

Comlongon Castle was built on the tidal plain of the shallow Solway estuary to combat the frequent border incursions by English raiders. The castle is mentioned as early as 1331 when the Earl of Moray, Thomas Randolph, gave the property to his nephew Sir William Murray. However, the current tower, one of the most massive in Scotland, was built between 1430 and 1435. All four photos were taken by me in August 2000.
The keep still has its original iron protective gate or "yett", leading to the basement and the fresh water well. From the basement a spiral stone staircase leads to the Great Hall with its vast fireplace [see left] above which is a particularly well preserved carving of the Legend of the Green Man. Leading from the Great Hall are steps down to the guard chamber complete with dungeon pit [see right]! The battlements are joined by a pair of cap-houses.
