About Neidpath Castle

Neidpath Castle is an L-plan rubble-built tower house, overlooking the River Tweed about 1 mile west of Peebles in the Borders of Scotland. The castle is open to the public, by arrangement.  An early castle was probably founded here by Sir Gilbert Fraser in about 1190.  His grandson was Sir Simon the Second, who was executed alongside Sir William Wallace in 1307.

The barony of Neidpath then passed to the Hay family, through marriage to Mary, the Fraser heiress and stayed with them until 1686, when the Duke of Queensberry bought it for his son The Earl of March. In 1810 it passed to the Wemyss family, who own it to this day.
