OS 25" map, (1959)

The locally accepted site of Dundee Castle, of which no trace remains. The castle, evidently of some strength and importance, is on record from 1290 but after 1314 there is no mention of it - the implication being that it was dismantled about that period.
Name Book 1858; A C Lamb 1895.

Site occupied by modern buildings.
Visited by OS (J L D) 17 April 1958.
