Fenton Tower
Fenton Tower
Tower house built circa 1575 by Patrick Whytelaw, son of Lord Ruthven. In 1591, King James VI of Scotland took refuge at Fenton Tower. In 1631, the Tower passed to Sir John Maxwell of Innerwick, who became Earl of Dirleton in 1646. However in 1650, Oliver Cromwell invaded Scotland and sacked Fenton Tower along with the nearby Dirleton Castle. Fenton Tower remained a ruin until its meticulous restoration in 1998.
