Dalveen Castle, Durisdeer, Dumfriesshire, was a property of the Douglases in the 15th century, was situated near Nether Dalveen farmsteading. One wing still existed in the memory of the inhabitants of the farmhouse in 1876, but no trace can now be found. The wing was described as square, about 30' over the walls, with a vault below, and an outside stone stair.

 

Presumed to be the residence of the Douglases of Coshogill and Dalveen.

The 1622 datestone is built into the north wall of the farmhouse at NS 8843 0694 and the Douglas coat of arms is in the west wall at NS 8842 0692.

The farmhouse is constructed partly of large sandstone blocks probably from the castle.
