Burleigh Castle

Fife | Milnathort | Castle | ★★

[Burleigh Castle]

This oddly shaped castle sits uncomfortably close to one of the roads out of Milnathort, Kinross-shire. Like many castles, 16th-century Burleigh was expanded and altered over the centuries, but here the result is unique, and the southwest tower is particularly appealing. The doors to the castle are usually locked, but you may be able to phone ahead for access to the tower interiors. On our last visit this involved going to a nearby house to collect the keys: holding the keys to an actual castle was a nice feeling.
