Castleton is a village in Angus, Scotland. This settlement is situated along the A94 road between Glamis and Meigle. Approximately one kilometre to the south is the village of Eassie noted for the presence of the Eassie Stone; this carved Pictish stone is dated prior to the Early Middle Ages. Slightly further to the south lies Ark Hill within the Sidlaw Hills.
Castleton Hotel stands on the medieval fortification that gives the settlement its name, an enormous defensive mound surrounded by a broad ditch. There are no visible remains of the buildings of the medieval castle, which were perhaps largely of wood.
