The Marian Tower

Monuments & Ruins

Leswalt, Stranraer, Dumfries & Galloway, DG9

    Visit Marian Tower and enjoy stunning views from this circular stone tower monument in Leswalt.

    The white-painted Marian Tower squats on the top of Craigengerroch Hill above Drumdow farmhouse. Recently repaired, it is once again a major landmark in the north Rhinns.

    A stone plaque on the side of the tower is inscribed 'Marian Hill 1818'. Some people say the tower was built to commemorate one of the women from the Ross family of nearby Balsarroch House (the birthplace of the polar explorer, Sir John Ross). Others claim it is a memorial to a local girl killed by a bull. Whatever the truth, the views from the monument out to Ailsa Craig and the Firth of Clyde are superb.
