A step back in time
OLD Buittle Tower is a B-listed 600-year-old tower near Castle Douglas that merits architectural and historic interest on a site that can be traced back to Iron Age farmers.
Former owners include Devorguilla, who was married to John Balliol and created Sweetheart Abbey in New Abbey where her late husband’s heart is said to be embalmed.
Now on the market, Buittle Tower has been altered and restored to residential use within the last 25 years but is in need of further refurbishment and modernization to reinstate the property to its former glory.
The accommodation spans around 2,800 square feet and details can be obtained from selling agent Hastings Property in Kelso, which is seeking offers over £475,000.
