Motte at Dun Mor Bonawe

Immediately to the east of the mouth of the River Awe and about 730 metres north of Bonawe House, there is an earthwork, the date and purpose of which are conjectural. It consists of a single broad rampart and external ditch cutting off a roughly triangular area measuring about 14.6 metres NW-SE by 10.7 metres transversely. The rampart is now reduced to a grassy bank about 8 metres in width and up to 4.5 metres above the ditch bottom, but only 0.5 metres above the level of the interior. It is surmounted at one point by a modern memorial stone. The ditch is flat-bottomed and about 12 metres wide. At the time of the visit by the RCAHMS, a sherd of green-glazed medieval pottery was noted at a point where the filling of the ditch was exposed by weathering. The earthwork is is similar in plan and style of construction to certain late medieval monuments, but there is insufficient evidence to give it positive identification.
RCAHMS 1975.
A possible motte. There are no indications of any walling. The ditch on the NE may originally have continued around the north and NW, but quarrying has destroyed any traces of this
