Sites and Monument Record: Blackness Castle Doocot (SMR 9)

About 150 yards S of the enclosure of Blackness Castle stands a ruinous doocot. It is oblong in shape, but only the N wall remains to any height containing a single string-course. The building measures 22 ft 11 ins by 15 ft 10 ins externally, with an entrance with set back rybates in the W wall. The doocot may have dated to the late 16th century.
