I always found this a strange place to put a castle.

They caad the toon Castlebay, so they needed tae get a castle, and kwik. They beelt it when the tide wuz oot, an when the beeldin wuz dun an the castle got foak tae wett in it, they needed tae defend it. The army poored in a pile o them, an when it wuz hoorafa hot an sticky weather, the sojers cood step oot the front dorr an go for a dook.

That sure is one hell of a moat... Not sure if it is true, but apparently when they were digging the moat there was confusion in the drawings, the builders were operating with the new fangled imperial measurements and the Irish groundwork contractors were still using the old chains and cubits.. Sort of cock-up you woud expect the council planning dept to notice...
