Lochhouse Tower Moffat
NT 082-033 Dumfriesshire Scotland
Lochhouse Tower is a mid 16th century stone tower house, founded by the Johnstones of Corehead. Of three storeys and a garret, there is a plinth at ground level, a set-back at third-floor level and a continuous corbel-course at the wall-head. Rectangular with rounded corners, with a vaulted basement and an entrance doorway which opened to a newel-stair and mural chambers. Restored back into a dwelling house in the 1980s, there are a number of original openings and three wide-mouthed gun-loops. 2 miles north-east is Auldton Mote and 16 miles north-west is Crawford Castle.
