"LESS THAN ONE HOUR AND A HALF'S DRIVE FROM EDINBURGH, THIS FANTASTIC SCOTTISH CASTLE SET IN 10 ACRES IS AWAITING ITS RESTORATION. 

A once magnificent Scottish Castle in private grounds of circa 10 acres and in need of complete restoration.

Situated in beautiful countryside in a quiet and private setting, this once grand and imposing property offers a buyer the opportunity to create a truly unique and stunning Scottish country residence. 

Cavers Castle is steeped in history and was most recently the seat of the Douglas family for over 300 years. In its day, the castle was a grand 64 room family residence sitting in grounds in excess of 100,000 acres. 

Today, the castle sits in the centre of the approx 10 acre grounds. The grounds contain a large pond to the western extremity, and amongst the woodland to the eastern edge are the remnants of a curling pond. "

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
