Archaeology Notes

NY36NW 36 c. 300 659

There are no visible remains of the tower of Redkirk which is depicted on a map of 1590. It is probably to be identified with the tower of 'Renpatrick' which is noted in Blaeu's Atlas, and may have stood near Redkirk steading (NY36NW 36).

Information from RCAHMS (IF), 4 January 1996.

J and R Hyslop 1912; J M Corrie 1916; J Stone 1991.

Listed as tower.
