Carleton Motte
Carleton Motte
This motte, or earth mound, was constructed in the early 12th Century, approximately 300 years before Carleton Castle was built. The motte is about 5 metres high. There would have been a wooden structure on the top, surrounded by a defensive palisade. (Source: "The Castles Of South-West Scotland", by Mike Salter).
