|Description ||This pile of stones is all that remains of Doon Castle Broch. Dating from approx 100BC it would have presented a spectacular sight when first built. The remains of a doorway and some lower walls can still be seen, but the remainder has collapsed. This castle occupied a prominent position at High Ardwell point and great views to the south towards the Mull of Galloway (as per photo) and west towards Northern Ireland can be had. Unfortunately, this photo was taken on a dull day, but I will endeavour to post a better photo of this location soon. Dating from approx 100BC, would have presented a spectacular sight when first built.|
