NS3974 : Dumbarton Castle: small chamber beyond the Portcullis Arch
For the Portcullis Arch, see [[1381252]]. When ascending the flight of steps shown there, the small structure shown in the present picture is just beyond the arch. I believe there is some uncertainly about the nature of the small cell-like feature in the present picture; I was told that it might be a prison, or a well. From its general appearance, it is tempting to identify it as the "black-hole" in which some prisoners were formerly confined; for comments by earlier writers on that cell, see [[5348795]]. It is worth noting though that, as mentioned at the link just given, nineteenth-century local historians seem to have placed the "black-hole" further to the north, beside the barracks; they may even have been referring to what was in reality the well-house (again, see the link just given), a feature which they do not mention separately. Dr MacPhail, in his book "Dumbarton Castle", mentions two wells: the upper was the one just referred to, while the lower was "situated at the top of the stairs beyond the portcullis arch". Dr MacPhail was generally very well informed, and that description fits the location shown in the present picture. Therefore, although I do not wish to be dogmatic about the nature of this small feature, it does seem that the lower well was located at or near this spot.
