Motte Hill
Motte Hill
The motte or Moat Hill is a flat-topped mound situated on the north-west bank of the Linn Burn (or Kirkton Burn as it used to be known) in the Orry and was likely to have incorporated a broad ditch. The south-east side was truncated in the late 18th century by the building of the Orry mill Link which has resulted in the removal of probably about a third of the site. The motte is likely to have been used for judicial and local assemblies. Other motte sites associated with the Montgomeries can be found at Polnoon Castle Link and at Castlehill Link .
