Druchtag Motte is the ancestral home of the McCulloch clan probably dating from 1100-1200 A.D and one of some sixty motte and bailey fortresses in Dumfries and Galloway. It is among the first monuments to be preserved in Scotland.
 
A medieval earthwork in the Machars district of Dumfries and Galloway, the Druchtag Motte lies just north of Mochrum village. It forms a steep-sided mound and has a summit area 20m (65 feet) in diameter. Druchtag once formed part of the barony of Mochrum of Druchtag held for a time by the McCullochs of Druchtag.
Druchtag Motte, Mochrum
