Cadzow Castle photographs
This is a picture of Cadzow Castle located within Chatelherault Country Park in Hamilton.

Cadzow castle as you can see from the picture is now is a dangerously derelict state and has been, with no action by its owner, Historic Scotland for a long time. Historically, it was believed that Cadzow Castle perched precariously above the Avon Gorge was the site of the hunting lodge of the ancient kings of Strathclyde.

More recently. (in relative terms!) Mary Queen of Scots stayed here after her dramatic escape from Loch Leven Castle.

The castle is set in the grounds of Chatelherault estate and part of the castle was added to, even after it became a ruin with the addition of a folly wall
