Remains of Lamington Tower
Remains of Lamington Tower
Lamington Tower was a medieval tower house, probably built in the late sixteenth century (as per the stone bearing the date 1589 and the initials EB, which is still visible in the south wall).

The entry for the tower on Historic Environment Scotland's online database Canmore states the following:

'The ruins of the S and W walls of Lamington Tower survive to a height of 3.0m to 4.0m, the E and N walls remaining at ground level. The walls, which are about 2.0m thick, are built of roughly squared uncoursed masonry in mortar. The vaulting of the ground floor may be seen on the inside of the S wall and some worked stones of an upper window are still in situ. The dimensions of the tower, which stands on a natural rise, are 12.0m E-W by 10.5m. Large blocks of masonry lie outside the walls and in an adjoining field the corbelling of the angle turret illustrated by MacGibbon and Ross survives as a complete block.'
