Morton Castle

Castles

Nr Thornhill, Dumfries & Galloway, DG3 5EH

    Once a stronghold of the Douglases, Morton Castle is a fine late 13th-century hall house.

    Majestically situated overlooking Morton Loch and the Lowther Hills behind, the now-ruined Morton Castle was a fine example of a late 13th-century fortified hall house. This was an impressive structure, though only one side of it still survives. Today, the site is under the care of Historic Scotland and can be visited at any time during daylight hours.
