The present castle was built in 1789 as a folly to enhance the view from Marchment House, about 8 miles to the North East, for Sir Hugh Hume, 3rd Earl of Marchmont. it was built on the ruins of a much larger older castle dating back to the 13th...more
We were driving through the area and spotted Hume Castle so decided to go for a visit. There was a small car park at the entrance to the field and information signs just through the gate. While the castle is a ruin the views are...More
This not your usual "Historic Castle" site. There is not much left but the history makes it worth a visit. Good parking but a bit of a walk, not the best for less able people. It was the home of Sir Alec Douglas Home's family...More

This sweet little ruin in the countryside was a delight to photograph. Plenty of wide faced sheep to act as a foreground. Round corners and saw toothed top border. The view from the top of the castle over the farmlands of the Borders area was...More
Stopped here on a very windy day, views were absolutely gorgeous in this solid ruin. Watch out for sheep droppings as the farm animals are roaming free and that's how it should be. Interesting history.

Sorry for the delay. Delighted to hear about your roots. Yes, Kelso would be a fine place to stay, although I have not stayed anywhere there so cannot make any personal recommendations either. I have stayed at Mansefield, a B&B at the eastern end of Greenlaw which is just north of the castle and even closer than Kelso. Greenlaw also has strong Hume/Home links.
