Fulton Tower
NT 605-158 Roxburghshire Scotland

Fulton TowerFulton Tower is a small 16th century stone L-plan tower house, founded by Hume of Cowdenknowes. It was possibly one of fortress destroyed by English troops under the Earl of Hereford, during the 1545 'Rough Wooing' invasion. A circular stair-tower flanked the eastern angle but most of this stair-tower and south-east wall have been demolished. The two surviving unvaulted rectangular storeys are fragmentary, with traces of fireplaces and a window but there is no indication of an entrance. Oval gun-loops pierce the north-west and north-east walls and around the tower are the turf-covered remains of outbuildings. In 1570, the lands of Fulton passed by marriage to William Turnbull of Bedrule. 2 miles north is Bedrule Castle and 4 miles south-east is Kilnsike Tower.
