Bowerhouse Doocot
Bowerhouse Doocot
Doocot of the rectangular lectern type with sloping roof and stepped gables to provide perches for the pigeons. The roof usually face south to give the birds a sunny surface to rest on, while sheltering them from northerly winds.

This one appears to be two-storey, the ground floor would have been used for other purposes and the pigeon quarters on the upper floor. One of the largest doocots in East Lothian and probably built by the owners of the former house at Bower House.
