Blagill Bastle is a complex stone defensible farmhouse, which has been substantially altered, with a possible small tower, absorbed within this extended two storey bastle house. The strong walls, with a removable stair up to the living quarters and a ground floor for stores and their livestock, provided a shelter from the cross-border reivers, until help arrived. 2 miles south-east is High Lovelady Shield Bastle.
Blagill Bastle is located north-east of Alston, off the B6294. 22 miles north-east of Penrith, on the A686-A689-B6294.
The site is visible from the road.
Car parking is by the side of the road.
