Our first three days in Scotland were spent at Comlongon Castle.  It's a beautiful site with charming, luxurious accommodations, and the most efficient, friendly staff I've ever come across.  In fact we began planning our next trip before we even left!  This section is a tribute to the best, most romantic three days spent anywhere!

To Phillip and Wendy, thank you so much for an absolutely lovely time.  We'll see you again soon!

A brief history
COMLONGON CASTLE, built on the tidal plain of the shallow Solway estuary to combat the frequent border incursions by English raiders is mentioned as early as 1331 when the Earl of Moray, Thomas Randolph gave the property to his nephew Sir William Murray. Early in the 18th Century the descendants of the Murrays, Lord Mansfield of Scone Palace, had a Mansion house built adjacent to the Keep.
