Dunskey Castle Scotland
Dunskey Castle is a ruined, early 16th century tower house, located 0.5 miles (0.80 km) south of the village of Portpatrick, Dumfries and Galloway, on the south-west coast of Scotland. A medieval fortification on the site was destroyed in 1489 by Sir Alexander M'Culloch of Myrtoun. The present Dunskey Castle was built by the Adairs of Kinhilt, who also possessed the Castle of St. John in nearby Stranraer, around 1510. In 1620, it was acquired by Hugh Montgomery, 1st Viscount Montgomery, who extended the building. In 1648 it passed to the Blair family, but was ruined by 1684.
