Dudhope Castle

Dudhope Castle Dundee Scotland

This massive many-towered castle, built in the 16th Century, was formerly the seat of the Scrymgeours, hereditary constables of Dundee.

Dudhope Castle is the ancient seat of the Scrymgeours, Constables of Dundee. Now grievously altered, debased and fallen on evil days, it still retains some vestiges of its proud past, as it stands on high ground looking out over the rooftops of the city. It has suffered much at the hands of time, neglect, vandals and improvers, but still survives threats of demolition. The building has undergone great changes in appearance, as is not to be wondered at, when, amongst other shifts of fortune, it has been used as a barracks and a woollen factory.
