Claypots Castle, Broughty Ferry

Claypots (or Claypotts) Castle is situated close to Broughty Ferry, near Dundee. It is an excellent example of a 16th century tower house, with very plain lower stories topped by more elaborate domestic quarters. The castle was constructed around 1570 to 1590 by the Strachan family, and subsequently sold to the Grahams of Claverhouse in 1620. After the Battle of Killiecrankie in 1689, the castle was forfeited, and eventually passed into the possession of the Earls of Home. It is currently in the care of Historic Scotland
