NX1993 : The Upper Ditch On Dinvin Motte

taken 9 years ago, near to Pinmore, South Ayrshire, Great Britain

The Upper Ditch On Dinvin Motte
The Upper Ditch On Dinvin Motte
Water still accumulates in the ditches. This is an impressive site, well worth a visit. The motte would have been constructed by digging the circular ditches and piling the earth up into walls and the central mound, called a motte. The motte would have been defended by a wooden palisade, with wooden buildings inside. No 12th century wooden structures have survived. (Source: "The Castles Of South-West Scotland", by Mike Salter).
