Mugdock Castle

Mugdock Castle was the stronghold of Clan Graham.
The original castle was built in the mid-14th century.
 It comprised four towers around a courtyard with high walls.
The main gate was in the middle of the south wall.
The castle stood on a mound of volcanic rock on the edge of Mugdock Loch.
