Craigmillar Castle

Craigmillar Castle is a ruined medieval castle in Edinburgh built for the Preston family, with work beginning in the 14th century and continuing through the 15th and 16th centuries. In 1660, the castle became the seat of the Gilmour family who resided in the castle until the 18th century when the property then fell into ruin.   Famous visitors to the castle include Mary Queen of Scots who stayed for around a month in the Autumn of 1566 to convalesce after an illness.
