NH 789-461 Nairnshire Scotland
Cantraydoune is a 12th century earthwork motte, possibly founded by Freskyn de Moravia. Standing above the face of a natural slope, the summit of the sandy mound is uneven and unusually a small flattened area projects northwards. Encased on three sides by a low retaining stone wall and the remains of a ditch, the Burn of Cantraydoune gives defence to the east. A deep eastern groove of a possible old excavation trench, is the mounds only visible feature. 2 miles north is Dalcross Castle and 3 miles north-east at Croy is Kilravock Castle.
