The parapet walkway at Fatlips Castle
The parapet walkway at Fatlips Castle
The 16th century 4-storey tower on Minto Craigs has recently been restored and access to the rooftop parapet walkway is possible by obtaining a key from the Thos. B Oliver garage in Denholm. The charge in 2013 is 10 but 5 is refundable on return of the key. The views from the roof walkway on a good day are stunning. Rubers Law is the hill in the distance right of centre in this view from the southwest side of the castle walkway. For a view of the restored castle, see NT5820 : Fatlips Castle restored (2013).
