British Isles Cruise July 2013 - Greenock Scotland
Built by George Maxwell in the 15th century, this still virtually intact castle was enlarged by his descendent Patrick Maxwell in the 16th century.
Patrick was infamous for murdering two of his neighbours and beating his wife of 44 years who bore him 16 children.
The oldest part of the castle is a tower built soon after 1478, with a gatehouse. The connecting range was added in 1597-1599 Patrick Maxwell.
