Sorbie Tower is a late 16th-century tower house hidden in a wooded area just off the B7052 between Garlieston and Sorbie village. Close beside the path to the Tower is an intriguing mound known as Sorbie Motte, which may have been an 12th century Pictish fort erected by the Vipont family.
Threave Castle is a grim and forbidding 14th century stone fortress situated on an island in the middle of the River Dee, just outside the town of Castle Douglas. Threave was built by the delightfully named Archibald the Grim, Lord of Galloway, eventually to become the 3rd Earl of Black Douglas.
