Abandoned Castle

Redhouse Castle - East Lothian  - 16th century towerhouse

more information  ...  HERE

It is now owned by a local landowner and a garden centre occupies the former walled garden.

These photos were taken a few weeks ago, hence the lack of Spring foliage

Entrance archway to the courtyard

Arms of John Laing and his wife Rebecca Denistoun who lived here in the early 1600 hundreds
The inscription above the door reads -
Without God all is in vain.

How the castle may have looked in its heyday

Painting by Andrew Spratt

Beyond the archway  -  horses in an adjacent field.

Barley Fields

Barley fields last week  -  East Lothian

On the right the road follows a historic estate boundary wall.
This road leads to a country park created in honour of  the American environmentalist
John Muir who lived in the nearby town of Dunbar until the age of eleven,
when his family emigratrd to America. He would have known this area well.


The wall is probably at least two or three hundred years old.

The Scottish Baronial style mansion encircled by the wall.
This shot was taken from the road and quite a distance away.

Cows in a field adjacent to the house.

18th centuty mill used for milling oats until the 1950s
