Hume Castle
Hume Castle
13th century Hume Castle stands on a prominent mound visible for miles. It was the seat of the Humes and conveniently placed to keep an eye on the English border stronghold of Roxburgh, just outside modern Kelso. The castle was destroyed in 1651 by the artillery of Oliver Cromwell.
