Remains of Bunkle Castle
Remains of Bunkle Castle
The earliest known owners of the lands around the Castle were a family named Bonkil (Bonkyl or Boncle) in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. A local rhyme refers to 'Davy' that is a reference to David I (1084 - 1153).
'Bunkle, Billie and Blanairne,
Three castles strong as airn,
Built when Davy was a bairn,
They'll a gang doon,
Wi Scotland's Croon,
An ilka ane sall be a cairn.'
