Carberry Tower
Carberry Tower
The original tower on the left dates mainly from the 16th century. A wrought-iron basket for use as a warning beacon stands in the north-west corner of its exceptionally massive parapet. In the 18th century the tower was acquired by the Elphinstone family who vacated their nearby ancestral seat. In the 1960s, its last owner, Lady Elphinstone, gifted the tower and its later extensions to the Church of Scotland who used it as a youth and conference centre. In 1996 it passed into the hands of the Carberry Trust and since 2004 has been run as a private care home.
