Bedrule Castle

 

bedrule castleThere are some slight remains of the castle of Bedrule, the baronial seat of the Turnbulls, consisting chiefly of the foundations of the ancient buildings, on the right bank of the Rule; and on the opposite side of the river are vestiges of outworks formerly connected with that stronghold; the site commands an extensive prospect.

 

The castle had once been held by the Comyns, but in the early 14th century it was granted by King Robert I to Sir James of Douglas and the douglases installed the Turnbulls as tenants who continued in heritable possession until about the end of the 18th century.
