Probably later 18th century. Single storey crenellated folly, symmetrical, 3-bay with end bays advanced to front (N), machicolated parapet. Mostly coursed conglomerate rubble, dressed and broached margins. Pointed arch doorway to front (transom removed) flanked by blind gothic windows. Circular openings to side elevations, rear plain. Roofless.
There is some evidence linking this folly with Robert Mylne (1733-1811) who apparently undertook some work at Amisfield House in 1766 - this structure may be what he refers to in his diary as the "castle". There is also evidence that the structure was originally a dovecot. (Information courtesy of John Woolman, Haddington).
