Its shape is an irregular, oblong with two points respectively projecting beyond the rest at the N.E. and S.W. The boundaries of this projection at the North-East are undefined. On the E. and S of the Parish the Boundaries are for the most part defined and traced by Cample Water, on the S.W. at the point of projection above mentioned the Boundaires are defined by a hedge and paling, on the W. and N. to Morton within the boundaries of another Parish nor within its limits as above described a detached part of any other Parish.

The hills or ridges run across the Parish from N.W. to S.E. The level ground is chiefly along the banks of River Nith and Cample Water and which is well protected by embankments from the encroachments of these Streams. The soil is dry and very productive. Farming and the rearing of Cattle are extensively carried on under the direct superindence of the Buccleuch's Steward, consequently large tracts of waste land are annually reclaimed. The Parish is well watered on each side by the Cample, Nith and Carron, numerous burns and rills and perennial springs supply the interior thereof.

OS1/10/40/1B On Mortonmuir's Hill the remains of a strong entrenchment are yet visible pronounced by locals generally as having been of Roman Construction. Both The Old and New Statistical Accounts of Parish also notice it as such. "At a short distance North-West of the Castle and on the other side of the Glen are the remains of a strong fortification which seems to have been a Roman fort or Castellum still called by the Name of Deer Camp; it about two miles North of Tibbers, Tiberii Castra, the great Roman Station in the Parish of Penpont; a Station well chosen to guard against incursions from recesses of the Mountains on the North and North-East (see Page 20) About ¾ mile West of Above are also visible remains of Another entrenchment likewise set down by locals of Roman origin The dimensions of this Camp are small but its square formation might favor the supposition of its having been a Roman Post-Castra Aestiva - capable of holding from 20 to 100. See Page 16. But the most important circumstance for supposing these Camps of Roman origin is the fact of the Roman Road having traversed the district as noticed by Gen[eral] Roy and other Antiquarians and whereby it would appear to have crossed Carron Water near Carronbridge where the branches diverged respectively towards Ayrshire via Tiberii Castra and towards Clydesdale via Wall Path in Durisdeer. Particular enquiries have been made in locality A few people have pointed out that which is from existing features and uncharacteristic sinuosities not the Roman Road but evidently only an Old fence which enclosed a deer park during the occupancy of Morton Castle by Thomas Randolph Earl of Murray (See Pages 20 & 25) Although scarcely ½ remains of the original fortalice ?in Morton now exist, these are still noble and have been considered the most perfect ruin of the kind in this part of the Country. The existing remains extend to upwards of 100 feet in length by 30 in width. The wall of the South front is almost entire, which from the foundation is about 40 feet high, having on the top at each corner a large round tower about 12 feet in diameter. The walls are from 8 to 10 feet thick (see Page 45) It gave the title of Earl to James Douglas Lord of Dalkeith, promoted to be Earl of Morton by James I in 1458. This honour being forfeited by the above Earls grandson, was again revived in the person of Sir William Douglas of Lochlevin. This Castle however seems to have been of higher Antiquity having belonged, as is said to Dunenald, the predecessor of Thomas Randolph Earl of Murray: and having been disponed in the reign of Robert I to Douglas of Morton. It was dismantled by David II on his return from England according to agreement with Edward III. About 300 yards South from Castle is a slight elevation which may have been used either as a beacon post or lookout station

The ruin is now the property of his Grace the Duke of Buccleuch. [In red ink] According to the McFarlane Mss [Manuscripts] in the Advocates library as quoted by Grose " this Castle is of uncertain origin; was kept in the minority of David Bruce, by Thomas Randolph Earl of Moray; and Stewards passed into the possession of that branch of the Douglases who became Earls of Morton, gave them their title and was allowed by them in their solicitude about other Strengths to go to ruins" Though not more than one half of the original structure now exists, it is considered to be the most perfect of the kind in this part of the County. It was originally protected by a sheet of water formed by large dams and strong embankments. The existing remains extend to upwards of 100 feet in length by 30 in width. The wall of the South front is almost entire, which from the foundation is about 40 feet high, having on the top at each corner a large round tower about 12 feet in diameter. The walls at the foundation are from 8 to 10 feet thick.
