OS 6" map (1961)

The remains of a border peel or tower may be seen at Glendorch.

G V Irving and A Murray 1864

The remains of a tower are incorporated in a barn at Glendorch.

NSA 1845

The whole of the S wall of the barn contains the springing of a barrel vault 2.5 m high and 1.2 m thick. Part of the tower projects W from the barn, 2.5 m high near its wall, but elsewhere mainly as turf-covered foundations. In the S wall of the barn is a splayed aperture. The overall dimensions of the structure have been 16.4 by 6.8 m. From the existing remains, this tower appears to have been of 16th century date.
