dbo:abstract
  • Hume Castle ist eine Burgruine in der schottischen Ortschaft Hume in der Council Area Scottish Borders. Sie ist auf der höchsten Kuppe der Umgebung gelegen und erlaubt so eine gute Sicht über die sich südlich erstreckende Ebene auf die englischen Grenzgebiete. Da die felsige Kuppe an der Nordseite steil abfällt und eine natürliche Barriere bildet, war die Südflanke am stärksten befestigt. 1971 wurde das Bauwerk in die schottischen Denkmallisten in der höchsten Denkmalkategorie A aufgenommen. Des Weiteren ist die Anlage als Scheduled Monument klassifiziert. (de)

It is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, recorded as such by Historic Environment Scotland. Standing as it does, on an impressive height above its eponymous castleton, it commands fine prospects across the Merse, with views to the English border at Carter Bar. It had historically been used as a beacon to warn of invasion.Its enormous walls were created in the 18th century but remnants of the central keep and other features can still be seen. (en)
