Hailes Castle, south-west of East Linton
Perched above the River Tyne, this ancient stone fortified hall was built c.1240 by the Gourlays. Much of their home still survives, including the central tower and a vaulted stairway. In 1567, Mary Queen of Scots stayed here before her marriage to Lord Bothwell. In 1650, it was severely damaged by Oliver Cromwell's troops during his invasion of Scotland.
