Castle Greg

Fortlet

This small fort of less than an acre lies just off the B7008, surrounded by the managed pines of the Camilty Plantation. Although the fortletitself is cleared of trees the deep mats of Polytrichum moss covering the area make the short walk to the site very arduous, there being no identifiable pathway. Once reached, and although overgrown with tussock-grass, the entire defensive circuit is easily traced, including the entrance causeway on the east side away from the modern road; there are no traces of any interior buildings.
