This is Morton Castle which I took on one of my castle hunts.
Built in the 13 century this fantastic ruins is located on a small hill beside an artificial loch and has a courtyard in the centre.
It lies 2.5 miles north-east of Thornhill in Dumfries /Galloway and is not far from Drumlanrig Castle Estate & Country Park.
The surrounding scenery and architectural remains makes this a must for any visitor.
