History and archaeology
Rindoon was built in the first half of the 13th century AD, i.e. 1200–50. The castle at Rindoon is thought to date to 1227 and was constructed by Geoffrey de Marisco. With the Gaelic resurgence of the late 13th and early 14th centuries the town was sacked and later completely abandoned.
