The 365 project. A year of Archibald Photography in photographs.
January 14. The ruins of Crawford Castle from the River Clyde. A castle on this site dates back to 1175, although these ruins are the remains of a re-build in the 1600s. There is archaeological evidence of a Roman Fort pre-dating the original castle by a thousand years. Today, bank erosion brings the Clyde ever closer to the earth mound on which the foundations lie. The ruins may only last another couple of millennia before succumbing to the rushing waters. A mere eye-blink in time in the history of this landscape.
