Doon Castle

The name given to a Pictish broch on the west coast of the Rhins of Galloway, Doon Castle stands on Ardwell Point, a low rocky promontory 3 miles (5 km) north northwest of Port Logan and 4 miles (6.5 km) south southwest of Sandhead. With walls still rising to a height of 2m (7 feet) and two entrances, it is one of the best-preserved of a small number of brochs in western Galloway that date from the 1st-century AD.
