NT7846 : Bastle, Printonan

taken 10 years ago, near to Fogorig, Scottish Borders, Great Britain

Bastle, Printonan
Bastle, Printonan
Blown up by Cromwell in 1650 or 1651 this was a fortified tower. Belonged to the Trotter family, a branch of which still farm Printonan. The ruin is on the edge of the wood, not in it as implied by the map.

Thank you to George Trotter of Western Australia who sent me the information and inspired me go and have a look.
