Balmangan Tower (Kirkcudbright) - Past and Present
Set in rural Kirkcudbright, Balmangan is a simple, ruinous 16th century tower house. It survives to first floor level though a century ago it stood higher.

A doorway leads to a vaulted basement; the upper levels accessed by a wheel staircase. The walls are of typical Galloway whinstone and would have been harled as was universal practice. There is a single horizontal dumb-bell gun loop.
