Corra or Corehouse Castle and its courtyard belong to the period from 1572 to 1700.

The site is on an overgrown precipitous rock which, on three sides, overlooks the river Clyde near New Lanark, Scotland. On the fourth, (north) side there are the remains of a ditch which at its west end drops down into a chasm.

The ruins comprise remains of a tower and a small courtyard to its east, all of rubble masonry about 2.0m thick. They are in poor condition. To the west of the chasm there are remains of a weak wall enclosing a rectangular area, 20.0 metres by 10.0 metres. This is continued along the top of the chasm and joined to the castle at the north entrance.
