About Morton Castle

Due to access restrictions in place as a precautionary measure while we undertake high level masonry inspections, there is currently no visitor access to this site. The nature paths around the site are open.

The dating of Morton Castle has been debated, but it was probably built in the late 1200s or early 1300s. Notoriously difficult to find, it’s situated on a triangular spur of land, surrounded by steep drops to an artificial loch.

It’s one of only a few surviving hall-houses that have been identified, and by far the most complex. It retains some of its original impressive presence, and carries a real sense of discovery.
