15th century castle on the south shore of the Clyde Estuary
About Newark Castle
Explore a rediscovered treasure. Great shipyards for a long time eclipsed this castle and its stunning Renaissance details. Contrast its beauty with the notoriety of its most famous noble resident - the murderous Sir Patrick Maxwell - and spot the exquisite Jacobean details on the exterior that make Newark one of the finest buildings of its time. Go ‘below stairs’ for a wonderful glimpse into the working lives of the castle’s servants. Peek inside the little bedchamber to see the charming, late 16th-century bed-press, wall panelling and painted ceiling, or soak up stunning views over the Firth of Clyde from the castle.
