Caerlaverock Castle is a moated triangular castle first built in the 13th century. It is located on the southern coast of Scotland.The important ruins of Caerlaverock, surrounded by ditches and earthen ramparts, stand in a pleasant green landscape on the north coast of the Solway estuary. This fearsome medieval fortress (13th century) has a not uninteresting interior façade (1634) (note the windows and door pediments enriched with heraldic or mythological sculptures). It is an early example of Scottish Renaissance style.
