"Calderwood Castle was a castle in East Kilbride. The castle was situated near the banks of the Rotten Calder Water, in what is now Calderglen Country Park. Constructed in the fifteenth century by the Maxwell family, the original building collapsed in 1773. A new castle was later rebuilt on the same site, but it eventually fell into disrepair, with the final vestiges of the castle being demolished with explosives in 1951. Nothing now remains except ruins and rubble. The now-ruined Craigneith Castle is nearby." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calderwood_Castle
