Old Buittle Tower was built in c 1500 for the Gordons of Lochinvar, this L-shaped tower house was originally within the bailey of Buittle Castle, once the seat of John Balliol, 13C King of Scots. Old Buittle Tower has in recent times been finely restored, and today provides the opportunity to explore the towerhouse and grounds/moats, also the medieval Laigh Hall, the period kitchen, stables and forge houses.
