Reviews of Bartinney Castle

  •  
    Roger Driver Added October 01, 2017
    The monument includes an enclosure containing eight round cairns, three of which are kerbed cairns, situated at the summit of the prominent Bartine Hill which provides excellent views all round but a poor defensive location. The enclosure survives as a roughly circular interior measuring approximately 75m in diameter. It is defined by a low earth and stone bank measuring up to 7m wide and 0.2m high. The eight round cairns are of various sizes. The westernmost kerbed cairn has an Ordnance Survey triangulation pillar inserted into it and one to the north east has the remains of a drystone kerb. The monument was described by Borlase in 1750 and by Henderson in the 1930's and the internal features have been variously described as hut circles, or cairns.
