Corra Castle (also known as Corrax, Corax or Corehouse Castle) is a ruined 16th-century castle within the Corehouse Estate near New Lanark, Scotland. It overlooks Corra Linn, one of the four waterfalls which make up the Falls of Clyde. In 1971 it became a Category A listed building, and it is also protected as a scheduled monument.

The site was chosen because it was seen as being impregnable, as it is surrounded by sharp cliffs on three sides.

Corra Castle was at one time the residence to one of the branches of the notable family of Somerville. In his 1832 book, The Edinburgh Encyclopaedia, David Brewster wrote:
