Castlehill

A western residential district of Dumbarton in West Dunbartonshire, Castlehill was built as a public housing estate, a mile (1.5 km) northwest of the town centre, although many homes have been sold under right-to-buy legislation. This was constructed after the Second World War on the land of Castlehill Farm. Both farm and district take their name from Castle Hill, a modest summit on which was built a fortification that may have been the Cardross Castle where Robert the Bruce died in 1329. This summit now lies within the Cunninghame Graham Memorial Park which is located between Our Lady & St. Patrick's High School and St. Michael's Primary School, while Dalreoch Primary is located on King's Way to the north.
