Cessford Castle
Cessford Castle
Built around 1450 for Andrew Ker. During the 16th century the Border area was the scene of continuing warfare between the Scots and the English and in times of cross-border peace, between the various families along the border. Cessford Castle is still in the ownership of the Ker family with the Duke of Roxburghe, who lives at Floors Castle, Kelso the present owner. Originally it had 14 feet thick walls and was surrounded by a strong outer curtain wall and a moat. It was over-run by the English during the 1560s and abandoned not long after.
