MacLellan's Castle

MacLellan's Castle is a ruined late 16th century towerhouse standing in the centre of Kirkcudbright. It is maintained by Historic Scotland.  It is an L-shaped design - a popular Scottish layout and is largely complete to full height although missing many of the upper floors and open to the sky.  Typically the castle has cellars and a kitchen on the ground floor and a fine great hall on the first - including a 'Laird's Lug' - a secret room where the owner could eavesdrop on conversations taking place in the hall.
