Bothwell Castle, 1910s

This postcard dates from around the 1910s and of course shows the ruins of Bothwell Castle. Pictured is the interior and at a time before the castle was opened to the public as a tourist attraction. Nearby at this time was former Bothwell House, which would have had a fine view over to these ruins.

The old postcards are slowly becoming more important the more the castle ruins erode and deteriorate, showing even 100 years ago a little more detail in this picture by comparison to today.
