    Yester Castle

    Located 1 miles (2 km) SE of Gifford in East Lothian, Yester Castle was built in 1297 by Hugo de Gifford, the so-called Wizard of Yester. Beneath is the sizeable Goblin Ha', where Gifford is said to have made magic. This name is echoed in a small hotel in the village of Gifford and the goblins were immortalised in Sir Walter Scott's "Marmion".

    [note: I assume that there was some sort of castle there before 1297]
