Milltown Castle

Map Reference: N545751 (2545, 2751)

Only two fragments of this building survive. The larger fragment is a wall standing almost to full height. This is indicated by a string-course and a line of roof-weepers near the top. It is aligned E-W and has a buttress (possibly modern) against the south face. On the north face there is a pitch mark indicating the former presence of a gabled building. There is no further trace of this building. A short distance from the east end of this wall is a smaller fragment of a building. This is thicker than the taller wall and has a good base batter on its east face. The castle stands on top of a motte which has a maximum height of about 8m. It is about 16m across the top.
