Castle Clanyard
Enigmatic ruins seen over the barley crop.

From the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland:
"The remains of tower-house, probably dating to the late 16th century, stand in a field 70m ENE of Low Clanyard farmsteading, and comprise a substantial part of the W gable (6.5m high, 5.4m wide and 0.7m thick) and a fragment of its adjoining N wall. The gable incorporates three internally splayed windows and the cut-back haunches for a ground-floor vault. The tower was built for the Gordons of Clanyard and is recorded as ruinous in 1684."
