Archaeology Notes

NR88SW 4 841 814.

The old castle stood close to the farm access road and immediately N of the chapel site (NR88SW 1). The site is possibly marked by a low stony mound in the field at NR 841 814.

M Campbell and M Sandeman 1964.

There is no evidence of a castle in the area cited. The mound referred to is one of several natural mounds which have had stone clearance added to them.
