History Embraced

As yet I have not discovered when this ancient tower house was built. Many survive and are scattered across the area, tucked behind farm buildings or hidden by trees like this one next to Cumstoun Hall. Many of them have been used as quarries for later buildings, but just a few are still occupied, one being Buittle Tower House near Dalbeattie.
