MacLellan Castle

Just got back from a trip up to Scotland to see the ancestral homestead. We took a train to Carlisle, rented a car, and drove into Kirkcudbright (kihr-KU-brie). It was some of the most beautiful country I’ve ever seen.

The castle’s pretty run down and small. It was actually built as just a residence rather than an actual castle. You can read a short history in one of the photos below. MacLellan tartan was available at a nearby kiltmaker shop, but I’ll wait until the summer (when we come back to play St. Andrews’ Old Course) for that.


The statue in front honors locals who died in World War I & II.


The front door of the home. The grounds weren’t open yet, but I could get a good shot of the little sign from the road:
