Dykeraw Tower (2 of 2)

The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland says of Dykeraw Tower that it was oblong on plan, of which only a portion of the SW gable still stands. The surviving wall is nearly 5ft thick and is built of unusually large, roughly coursed stones.

 

It belonged to the Oliver family, but In 1513, like many other peel towers around here, the tower of 'Dyker' was burned by Sir John Ratclif.
