Statement of Interest

The 1837 estate map shows evidence of buildings on this site, presumed to be the older parts of the present complex; the 1st edition of the OS map (1864) appears to show the buildings in their present form. The

Towers is an integral part of the Dougarie hunting lodge group, but differs markedly in style from the kennels at Brodick Castle (also listed), another property developed by the Dukes of Hamilton.
