Tower Hotel Elgin
NJ 216-629 Moray Scotland
Tower Hotel was possibly a 17th century stone defensible town lodging, founded by Andrew Leslie of Glen of Rothes, merchant and magistrate of Elgin. In the mid 19th century, Dr Mackay remodelled the house and all that remains is a three storey rubble built circular tower of 1634, crowned by a small corbelled-out square cap house. Now attached to a three storey asymmetrical Scottish Baronial house, with a turret in re-entrant angle, a pediment on the tower, bear the arms of Leslie and Abernethy, with the initials A.L. and I.B. for Andrew Leslie and Jean Bonyman his wife. Nearby are Bishop's House and Ladyhill, 4 miles north-west is Duffus Castle.
