NX 891-992 Dumfriesshire Scotland
Morton Castle is a fine late 13th century two storey fortified hall house, founded by the Adairs. Dismantled in 1357, it was rebuilt in the early 15th century, by the Earls of March. It was a stronghold of the Douglases, until 1715 but sadly little now remains of two of its walls. 3 miles west is Drumlanrig Castle.
Morton Castle is located north-east of Carronbridge, off the A702. 17 miles north-west of Dumfries, on the A76-A702.
The site is owned by Historic Scotland and is freely accessible in daylight hours.
Car parking is by the side of the road.
