Ruins of Markle
Ruins of Markle
"North of the East Lothian village of East Linton on a rocky mound a few fragmented walls remain of Markle castle, with the shell of a 1300's tower and a 1500's hall house to the east forming a small courtyard. The entire site was originally surrounded by a fortified ditch which helped highlight its position. There was a village of Markle but it has long since vanished, so too have the monastic buildings mentioned in early accounts". Andrew Spratt LinkExternal link
