Myrton Castle

A ruined L-plan tower house located on a 12th-century motte, Myrton Castle lies 1¼ miles (2 km) east of Port William. Built in the 16th Century for the MacCullochs, it was sold to the Maxwell family in 1685. They later built Monreith House a half-mile (0.8 km) to the southwest and the old castle was used for a time as a doocot. Nearby are the remains of Myrton Chapel.
