NY59SW 9 c549 949.

(Approx NY 549 949) N (Nether) Riccarton with tower symbol on Ponts map of Liddesdale (1608).

The approximate location falls on low marshy ground within a wide bend of the Liddle Water. No significant features were noted and a probable 18th century mill at NY 5492 4997 shows no obvious re-used material. Dr Robson (Hawick Museum) has no information on the name, and he has no documentary evidence to substantiate the existence of any form of tower in this area.

Visited by OS (JRL) 30 July 1979
