Torwoodlee Tower from the north
Torwoodlee Tower from the north
The original 16th century tower, seat of the Pringle family, was destroyed in 1568 during raids by rival families. This tower dates from 1601, designed to be a comfortable yet defendable fortified house. The family moved to the new Torwoodlee House in 1783, leaving the old tower to the ravages of time. In 2015-16 it was stabilised and repaired by a company from East Linton to make the ruin safer for visitors. (From the nearby information boards).
