I went to Crichton castle while researching my family history in Edinburgh. Unfortunately the castle interior is only open during the summer months.
The castle is set on a the side of a hill, in the rugged rolling landscape of Midlothian with majestic views across the valley. This place really feels like it’s away from civilisation.
Behind the main structure is a ruined stable building that looks more like a church. Apparently servants lived on the floor above the animals.
One day I’ll have to try to get back there when the place is open, but I’d still recommend visiting for it’s beautiful location.over 7 years ago
