Mangerton Tower, Newcastleton, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on Mangerton Tower near Newcastleton in the Scottish Borders region.

Mangerton was a Tower House and important power base for the Armstrongs at a time when the entire Borders region was lawless. There is a record of a Alexander Armstrong at the Tower in 1378 followed by Armstrong family ownership through to 1629 when the property was transferred to Francis Scott, Thereafter, the Tower appears to have gone into decline and now just comprises the base and foundations. There is an armorial, stone dated 1563 with initials S.A. and E.F.
