Boyne Castle

Impressive 16th Century Quadrangle Castle

Built-in the late 1500s Boyne Castle, sometimes known as Boyne Palace, is a quadrangle castle built above the Boyne Burn.  The castle is neglected and is somewhat overgrown with thick thorns, brambles and ivy that now cover its crumbling walls.

Although now a crumbling ruin, it has been said that Boyne Castle was an impressive dwelling with fine rooms, built over vaulted basements and maintained large windows.  The structure of Boyne Castle is dangerous, the vaults are collapsing and very little hold up the towers or the walls of the great hall. Crumbling holes that were once windows provide steep drops downwards. Enjoy from outside and stay safe!

As voted by National Geographic Top Rated Places to Visit – “A wonderful region of Scotland. Beaches are fantastic, and the area welcomes visitors as one of their own. Largely rural. People work together for the greater good–fishermen tolerate canoeists; farmers allow walkers to pass over their land on footpaths, etc.”
