There 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 passed to the Douglases in the 14th century, before passing on to the Turnbulls.
