Stoneypath Tower

Stoneypath Tower

Standing on a promontory above a river with three steep sides, Stoneypath Tower is a 16th century L-plan tower house, which may incorporate part of a 15th century keep. The original entrance was reached by an external stair, but this was sealed and replaced by a new entrance. The hall was on the second floor, and a turnpike stair climbed to all floors. There was a prison in the thickness of the wall.

It was a property of the Lyles, but later held by the Hamiltons of Innerwick, the Douglases of Whittinghame, then the Setons. The tower may have been blown up at some time. It has since been completely rebuilt and restored.
