A mediaeval 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.
