Frenchland Tower

UK»Scotland»Dumfries and Galloway»Frenchland Tower

Frenchland Tower was originally a 16th century stone rectangular tower house. Of three storeys and a garret, in the 17th century a substantial L-plan wing was added, which contained a scale-and-plait staircase rising from ground to first-floor levels, with additional accommodation on the floors above. But sadly only the gables now stand to their full height, with part of the original wheel-stair in one corner. Around the tower there are traces of an enclosure and to the south-east, what may be an outbuilding.
