    Claypotts Castle Information

    Claypotts Castle is a late medieval castle and it is one of the best-preserved examples of a 16th-century Z-plan tower house in Scotland.

    The castle was originally built by John Strachan around 1569–1588 and consists of projecting towers at opposite sides of a rectangular main block, known as a Z-plan tower house. This was a popular design in the 16th century and allowed defenders to fire along the faces of the main block from both towers.
