Theft from historic castle grounds

POLICE are investigating the theft of horse equipment from the grounds of an historic castle between Annan and Dumfries.

They say that an Ariat-brand leather horse bridle, valued at around £400, has been taken from a shed in the grounds of the peel tower of Comlongon Castle, the hotel and wedding venue.

The theft is believed to have taken place sometime between Thursday August 25 and Saturday August 27.

Police Scotland are appealing for information.

Constable Graeme McKirdle, of Annan Police, said: “We are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in the Clarencefield area over this period.

“Anyone getting cold callers at their door, perhaps asking for directions or to carry out home repairs, should give us a call at Annan on telephone number 101.”
