Creich Castle
Creich Castle
The castle originally stood on rocky ground surrounded by bog.

Over the years the bog was drained under land improvement schemes and today its defensive position is not so obvious.

Creich Castle was the birthplace of Mary Beaton, one of the "Four Marys" chosen by Mary of Guise to serve her daughter Mary Ist of Scotland.
