Description
Lochmaben, although now a ruined, almost haphazard pile of stones being inexorably eaten by the vines and plants that are growing over it, was started in the late 12th century. Of course, it was originally an earthen motte with extensive ditches and rampart defences. A castle here was first mentioned in 1173, and may have had stone buildings by 1298.
