Bower of Wandel
NS 951-288 Lanarkshire Scotland

Bower of WandelBower of Wandel is possibly a 12th century earthwork motte, founded by the Jardines. Standing on the rocky knoll, is a 15th or 16th century tower house but only its defaced basement now remains. The gap in the south-east wall may be a former entrance and there is the springing of a vault on the internal north-west wall. The bases of three internal-splayed windows are the only features of interest and Wandel was said to be a favourite hunting place of King James V. Defended on three sides by a loop of the River Clyde, on the north-eastern open approach the position of outworks or a bailey has been lost. A miles south-west is Roberton.
