North East view of Hermitage Castle

For 400 years this impressive ruin served as the "guardhouse of the bloodiest calley in Britain" Hermitage Castle's proximity to the English border made it a particular prize for both countries. The stone castle was built in 1240 by Sir Nicholas de Soules but there was a wooden castle here long before. There are still the remains of large earthworks all around the castle.
