Ruins of Crawford Castle
Ruins of Crawford Castle
There was a Roman fort at Crawford in the early years of the first millennium, long before Thor Longus, who founded the church at Ednam in the Scottish Borders, was granted the lands. Thor, who is said to have founded the Crawford family, built a motte castle on the site before it was later strengthened by the new lairds, the Lindsay family who were granted the Barony and title, Earl of Crawford, by Robert II of Scots. In 1488, James IV granted the lands to Archibald Douglas, 5th. Earl of Angus.
