A mound which once stood here was identified as a possible motte. I have recorded it here for future research.
The mound was said to be similar to that at Greenhill and may have been an early predecessor of Busbie Castle on the opposite bank of the Carmel Water. It stood on a slight spur of land created by the confluence of the Carmel Water and a smaller burn, so that it was protected by water on two sides of a triangle.
The castle of Knockentiber is marked on Blaeu’s map of 1654 but this may represent an earlier name for Busbie Castle which doesn’t seem to be marked.
The mound is thought to have been levelled in the first half of the 19th century.
