Coulter Motte
Coulter Motte
Mottes were common features of the Scottish landscape in the 12C. They were fortified residences of feudal lords, and centres of local administration. On the flat top would have been a timber and clay building, protected by a timber palisade. Only the mound remains, the encircling ditch has been filled in, and there is no trace of bailey, courtyard, stables, brewhouse, bakery and other buildings.
