Caskieben (site of)
Caskieben was a palisaded tower built by the Garviach family during the 12th century Norman expansion into Scotland. It stood on a low, circular mound surrounded by a 2 metre deep, 15 metre wide moat.
This earlier wooden tower was superseded nearby by a 13th century stone castle also named Caskieben at first, but later renamed Keith Hall.
Nothing now remains of a structure, but the mound and moat are still visible.
