(NS 2232 7313) Dunrod Castle (NR) (Site of)

OS 6" map (1958)

Dunrod Castle, formerly a property of the Lindsays, stood a little S of the lands of Flatterton. Its stones were used for wall-building, so that all that remained in 1856 was a slightly raised, grassy mound covering the foundations. The site was pointed out by Mr Cairns, tenant, Dunrod Farm.

G Crawfurd and W Semple 1782; Name Book 1856

The site occupies an eminence over looking Kip Water. There is no trace of any building foundations no further information was obtained during field investigation.

Visited by OS (JD) 21 July 1955.
