Claypotts Castle is compact but impressive z plan castle dating back to the 1560’s. The walls are pierced by gunloops and shot holes testifying to the troubled times that existed when it was built. The castle was home to John Graham of Claverhouse in the mid to late 1600’s, notorious for his bloody persecution of Covenanters in Galloway, but also more kindly remembered for achieving victory at the Battle of Killiecrankie in 1689 in the Jacobite cause, during which he was killed.
