Chapel Hill Chapeltoun
NS 394-442 Ayrshire Scotland

Chapel HillChapel Hill is a possible medieval earthwork motte, which could also be defined as a Bronze Age tumulus. Sadly when the site was raised to its present height in the mid 19th century, it was altered and landscaped beyond any recognition of its original form. At the same time, undated inhumations and possibly burnt stones, were found around the bottom of the eastern and southern sides. Standing on a slightly raised promontory on the edge of a hill slope, the large circular flat-topped mound, has an ornamental appearance. It is also possible that the earthwork was once, the position of a homestead, a Moot Hill or a viewing platform. A mile east is Law Mount and 8 miles south is Dundonald Castle.
