We live at the end of The Calderwood Trail, one of the nature trails belonging to Calderglen Country Park. The trail is absolutely beautiful, especially at autumn time, and today I took a good 2 hour walk up the trail.
This is all that remains of the Castle's terrace. The Castle would have been behind me where I took the photo.
A very creepy hollowed out tree.
Where the castle would have been.
Sharp drop down the edge!
The path ahead.
The path behind me.
Love the autumnal colours.
What's left of the part of the castle walls.
Apparently this was the Castle Crypt. When you look inside, there are ditches where they exhumed the bodies and moved them to a local churchyard. I must try to find out which one. There are claims they also buried the body of the family horse in the crypt.
Stream that runs into the waterfalls.
The Castle Falls.
It's a long way back!
