Captain's Bridge (Drummochreen) W



Visited 04.05.23

Captain's Bridge (Drummochreen) W Hillfort is located immediately W of Captain's Bridge on the B741, c. 4 miles S of Maybole in South Ayrshire.

The E flank of the hillfort has been truncated by the construction of Captain's Bridge, leaving a 20 foot sheer rock face. The N and S flanks are protected by natural contours. There are remains of a defensive ditch and rampart on the exposed W flank of the fort. The ditch is c. 10 feet wide and 1 foot deep, the rampart c. 5 feet high. The open enclosure, sloping gently from W to E, has a sparse population of trees. It measures c. 20 yards E-W and 18 yards N-S. There are no man-made features visible in the enclosure.

Canmore ID 40869 has further details of Captain's Bridge (Drummochreen) W Hillfort.
