NO4153 : Ballinshoe Tower

Ballinshoe Tower
Ballinshoe Tower
Ballinshoe is a small fortified tower house near Forfar, and was once part of the Glamis Estate. Built in the 16th century, the tower is rectangular in plan, has two single-room floors, attic space, and an adjacent enclosure. A bartizan is visible in one corner and it looks to me as though there was once a circular tower on the opposite corner where the entrance door is, but I wasn't going to brave wet grass and nettles to look closer! It was originally the property of the Lindsay family but passed to the Fletchers around the mid-17th century.
