Located on the bank of the Tweed and a frequent target of attacks from the Scots including Robert the Bruce. Shame the superior Scots forces at Flodden made a tactical error, otherwise this would probably be in Scotland.

A great place to while away a couple of hours. Plenty of information boards to read and picturesque ruins to photograph.

This is a wonderful ruin with many areas to photograph. We had beautiful blue skies with puffy clouds which made the photos really special. There are many different angles from which to shoot the exterior.
