ND1248 : Dirlot Castle

taken 13 years ago, 3 km from Westerdale, Highland, Great Britain

Dirlot Castle
Dirlot Castle
Next to nothing now remains of the castle. The small keep stood on top of this rock spike with a curtain wall and perhaps two smaller towers on the low ground below the spike. Never much of a defensive position it served more as a frontier post on the edge of the Keiss, Sinclair and Gunn clan lands.
