Fatlips Castle is a Scottish Borders icon perched atop Minto Crags looking out over Teviotdale, past Denholm and Bedrule, onto the famed Ruberslaw mountain, and beyond, towards the English border. This Borders Tower has been known through the centuries as Mantoncrake Castle, Catslick Castle, Minto Castle, and most affectionately as Fatlips Castle. Originally the tower provided a distant view towards England and used bonfires to signal the occupants of Bedrule Castle, across the River Teviot to the south, of impending danger. (Minto, Scotland)
