Drumcoltran Tower (HES)

A well-preserved tower from the mid-1500s that now sits in a busy farmland. In 1550, the lordship of Kirkcunzeon passed from the Herries family to the Maxwells of Caerlaverock, when a son of Lord Maxwell married Agnes Herries. The couple may have built Drumcoltran Tower soon after. It possibly began as a simple rectangular tower, with a projecting wing added at the end of the 1500s, including a new entrance and the spiral stair. But the building history is not clear.
