Newark Castle is in Port Glasgow, near Greenock. Built in the 15th century, it was the home of the Maxwell family. Like most castles, it was added to and changed over the centuries.

There's a working shipyard right behind it!
There's something very special about castles. The architecture is amazing.
The shapes and textures of the stonework are fascinating.

The views from Newark's battlements are stunning. You can see right across the Clyde. This was obviously why it was built there - good strategic position.
It’s a wonderful place to visit, with very friendly staff.

One of my good friends is in Scotland at the moment (a Scottish girl/lass, but new Australian) she is getting married there this weekend...such a shame I was unable to go... it would've been a fantastic wedding and so much fun!
Wow, amazing! We can't wait to visit castles when we are there is September, something 100 years old is old in Australia.
