Bothwell Castle now and then


1969 Bothwell Castle wmThis incredible Aerial view of Bothwell Castle is from 1969 which looks not too unfamiliar to what it looks like today.

However, its the other remarkable image I like best! It’s an illustration of how it once may have looked in the 13th Century from a drawing by Alan Sorrell in 1959.

These postcards were obtained through eBay.
