Statistical Account (1842)
040 All that now remains of this is a broken and irregular mass of stone & lime. To all appearances it has once been a quadrangular building, as the remaining portions of the walls indicate, which are from 2 to 5 feet high and about 5 feet in thickness. It stands in close proximity to Auchencloigh and a small portion of it has been converted into and is used as a sheep - ree. - To judge from the huge fragments which now remain it must have been a place of great strength, but there is no person in the neighbourhood can give any information as to when, or for what purpose it was erected and though it is known by some as Auchencloigh Castle, by others it is asserted as having been nothing more than a farmsteading.
