Site information

Kilbride Castle, also known as Comyn's Castle, was a castle that was located to the north of East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire, Scotland.[1]

The castle was owned by the de Valognes family, until the castle passed by marriage of Isabel de Valognes to David Comyn in the 13th century. After the Comyns' lands were confiscated by King Robert I of Scotland, the castle and lands were granted to Walter Stewart. King Robert II of Scotland granted the lands to John Lindsay of Dunrod in 1382.

With the construction of nearby Mains Castle in the 15th century, Kilbride Castle fell into disrepair and was abandoned.
