From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Barjarg Tower is an L-plan tower house probably dating from 1680, four miles south-east of Penpont, Dumfriesshire, Scotland.[1] It is attached to a 19th-century mansion.[1]

History

The land appears to have been given to Thomas Grierson by the Earl of Morton in 1587.[2] His son John Grierson and his wife Grizel Kilpatrick built the tower.[1] Subsequent owners included the judge Lord Tinwald and the minister Andrew Hunter.[1]

Structure

The castle, which has been modernised within, has a crenellated parapet, which may be a later addition.[1] It has one open round turret at one corner and two conically capped turrets at two others.[1] The castle, which has four storeys and an attic, is built of red rubble.[2]

It is a category B listed building.[3]
