Map link for Benton Castle

Alan Reid 1973

A fair amount of the structure of Benton Castle remains, and its original character is traceable, showing it to have been a very small enclosure castle with a round keep, and another round tower on the exposed side. The ward was polygonal, and the building dates from the late 13th-century. No contemporary history of the castle is known.
