Notes

A bastle situated in gardens north east of Low Angerton House. The bastle is constructed of large roughly shaped and roughly coursed stone blocks, and measures 10.5 metres east-west by 6.7 metres, with walls standing to a maximum height of 2.5 metres. It comprises the lower part of the west wall and 4 metre to 5 metre lengths each of the north and south walls; the east wall is traceable as a slight earthwork and at the south east a corner stone is visible through the turf. The standing walls are built on a boulder plinth. In the centre of the west wall is a blocked byre doorway with a semicircular arched head cut from two large blocks of stone. There is a drawbar tunnel in the north jamb and two iron hinges in the south jamb.
