Borthwick Castle stands as one of the most important historic buildings in Scotland, indeed in Europe. A twin towered baronial keep, built by the first Lord Borthwick in 1430, whose sepulchre can still be seen with that of his lady in the old village church.       It was to this castle in 1567 that Mary Queen of Scots, surely one of the most tragic and enigmatic women of all time and her third husband, the Earl of Bothwell, fled from Edinburgh to seek sanctuary in this impregnable fortress.
