Castle "Moil"

Postby Dunc » Sat Jan 14, 2006 3:57 pm

Dont suppose many people know there was a Castle up at High Askomil??

Way way back ..It was in the field below Bellfield at NGR724210 and is on an old map I have somewhere.Had MacDonalds in it and was associated with the Castle out on the rock at Kilcousland on Isla Muller or the small "keep" to give it a better name.Think the son was imprisioned there after burning down the Castle at Askomil and dispatching his father in the fire..nice people!!

Thats the lesson for today folks..
