Carberry Tower
The lands of Carberry belonged originally to Dunfermline Abbey but passed into the hands of Hugh Rigg, an advocate, at the time of the Reformation. He built the tower after 1543 and his son added an extension before it passed to the Dicksons, one of whom was a Provost of Musselburgh during the 1745 Rising and died bankrupt. It was then acquired through marriage by the Elphinstone family. Lady Elphinstone, sister of the late Queen Mother, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, gifted it to the Church of Scotland in the 1960s. It is now a privately-run care home, though plans are afoot to convert it into a hotel. LinkExternal link NT3669 : Carberry Tower
