NS5553 : Castlehill

taken 13 years ago, near to Eaglesham, East Renfrewshire, Great Britain

A semi natural knoll, 70m in diameter at the base and 3m high, bearing evidence of modification as a motte near Castlehill Farm was identified in 1978. However recent investigations undertaken in 2007 suggest it is entirely natural and there is no evidence that its top or sides have been modified to form a motte. Other motte sites associated with the Montgomeries can be found at Polnoon Castle Link and at Motte Hill Link .
