Dunjop (site of)
Dunjop was the site of a tower belonging to the Ashennan family although nothing of it now remains.
The Ashennan family, also known as Shannan or O’Shannan, were in possession by the end of the 16th century and the property is marked as a tower on Blaeu’s mid-17th century map, based on Pont’s late 16th century work.
Dunjop was later owned by the Alison family until the second half of the 18th century when it passed out of their possession.
There is a mound nearby which has been interpreted as a motte, possibly a predecessor to this property, although it may be a garden feature associated with Dunjop House.
I have placed the site of Dunjop at the farmstead, which occupies an elevated position, pending further research.
