Hermitage Castle
"With walls high and strong,"says the information board !

Hermitage Castle has a romantic past, with Mary Queen of Scots visiting her secret lover, the 4th Earl of Bothwell, when he was lying injured on his sick bed here.
Sir Walter Scott was also fond of this castle and had himself painted with it in the background.
