    Castle Bolton

    Castle Bolton gives a glimpse into life in the 'middle ages.' It is in a state of half-repair. There's is enough detail left to get an idea of how castle life was. The castle, having been home of 11 generations of the noble Scrope family, is most notable for having housed Mary, Queen of Scots, in a sort of house arrest in the 16th century.

    This castle is still privately held and can be rented for occasions such as weddings.

    See the Castle Bolton web site for more information.
