To the north of Gordon village, on a long ridge, is a site traditionally known as 'Gordon Castle', where the Gordon family who once owned the surrounding land had a residence.

In 1834, the minister for the parish, James Patterson, wrote in the New Statistical Account that it was still possible to trace a moat or ditch in an area known locally as 'The Castles'. No earthworks survive today, but aerial survey has revealed the cropmarks of what are probably a prehistoric fort.
