Entering Hume
Entering Hume, taken 4 years ago
Beyond the village sign, Hume Castle sits on its marvellously elevated site. William, grandson of Waltheof, Earl of Dunbar, himself a descendant of the Earls of Northumbria, acquired the lands of Home (or Hume) in the early 13th century, and took his surname from his estate, a not uncommon practice of the time. It is assumed that he built the first stone fortifications at the site.
