Saltoun Hall Doocot
Saltoun Hall Doocot
A square castellated folly at Saltoun Hall, built circa 1800. By this time doocots were more ornamental in nature than in previous centuries. It is located in woodland across Birn Water from Saltoun Hall. Round-arched panels on each elevation, crenellated parapet and the doorway approached by stone steps on one elevation. Octagonal lantern above with flight holes, crenellated and with arrow-slit windows on each face, alternately glazed and blinded. There is a circular interior lined with nesting boxes.
