Smailholm Tower Castles Next

Smailholm Tower is located in southern Scotland in the Borders region near the village of Kelso.  The tower is a well preserved example of a tower keep, although the surrounding curtain wall and gate have long since been demolished.  This castle was a pleasant diversion from our tour of border abbeys in the area.  The interior of the castle is set up as a museum.  You can explore the battlements on the roof for wonderful views of the countryside for miles in every direction.
