Barns Tower is a rectangular 15th Century tower house of 3 storeys and an attic. The tower has lost its parapet and has a later roof and gables. The entrance, still with an iron yet, leads through the lobby to the vaulted basement. A narrow mural stair
rises to the first floot, the upper floor reached by a modern stair.
It was a property of the Burnets of Burntisland, and built about 1498. The tower was probably abandoned when a nearby mansion was built in 1773. One of John Buchan's early novels is called "John Burnett of Barns".
