The remains of this castle stand above the Burn of King Edward, the highest section being a part of the gatehouse standing to a height of around 5.0 metres.
The castle was probably built by the Comyns in the 13th century, and although generally contemporary with the reign of King Edward of England, the name is actually a corruption of Kinedar (or one of its many variations). It is believed to have been re-built in the 16th century.
