Moy Castle 5

Leaving the pit prison we ascend a narrow circular stairway to the top of the tower. From the crumbling parapets you can see down into the overgrown interior of the castle. And looking out over the wall an old galley slip can be seen slicing into the shore. Moy castle played a prominent role in the movie I Know Where I'm Going, and it was up here that the fictional stone engraved with a 'curse' was mounted on the wall. If you ever have a chance to get inside Moy, be sure you see the movie first. For although there was never such a stone, it will be a memorable experience for you to stand on the parapets here while recalling the scene when the Laird of Kiloran realizes the true meaning of the words on the stone.

Galley Slip?
