Abstract


The surviving remains of the Dunbarney Tower are described in detail and a reconstruction is presented. There is no date on the tower, nor on the mansion house, but the doo'cot at the side of the approach to the house bears the date 1697 and the initials J.C. (John Craigie). The masonry of all three buildings is the same in appearance. The windmill is thought to have been built in the second half of the seventeenth century perhaps continuing in use for a hundred years.
