Castle Haven

Description:

Castle Haven Dun. A D-shaped galleried dun with outer fortifications. Situated on a low raised cliff facing out into Wigtown Bay, it has a rear entry with a ruined stair leading down to the beach. It was partly reconstructed in 1905 by James Brown of Knockbrex. 

 

Relics found during the clearance include both Early Iron Age and 8th/9th century objects, as well as a human skeleton which was found on the floor of the outer court, against the E wall of the central structure.
