Crookston Castle is the only remaining medieval castle within the city of Glasgow.

The present castle was built by the Stewarts of Darnley around 1400. It was built on the site of an earthwork thought to be the remains of a previous defensive structure dating back to the 1100s.

Crookston Castle is managed and maintained by Historic Environment Scotland.

The castle has received extensive damage over the centuries, yet what remains is still very impressive. One of the castle’s original four towers is still accessible and offers spectacular views out over the city.
