Description"ounded by David I in the twelfth century, this once mighty fortress changed hands several times during the prolonged and often bloody fighting between Scotland and England in the medieval period. Warfare, neglect and ultimately, the construction of the station and the railway bridge, reduced the castle to the ruin we see today. The fragment of the castle seen in the picture is known as 'the White Wall'." Photo by Euan Nelson, 2008, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
