Harbottle Castle

  • Description

    The ruins of Harbottle Castle, on the ancient mound in the middle distance, testifies to the turbulent times of the 13th - 17th Century here on the borders. Beseigned and destroyed at least twice it became the residence of the Warden of the Middle Marches who had the unenviable job of keeping the peace at at the time of the Border Reivers. For almost 400 years the families of the English and Scottish borders fought an endless series of raids and reprisals. We get the word 'Bereved' from them during this time of larceny and murder.
