Photograph of Craigmillar Castle, Edinburgh. In the foreground, an area of open grassland leads to a stone wall with a tree in the centre. Behind the wall and partially obscured by the tree, stands a ruined tower at the apex of the castle walls.

The Preston Family built Craigmillar Castle during the late 14th century. It was altered during the 15th and 16th Centuries until it fell into ruin in the 18th century. It is now owned by Historic Scotland.
