Tower Of Hallbar
Scotland

The Tower of Hallbar, formerly home to the Lockharts of Lee, is situated in the beautiful Clyde Valley.


The first mention of Hallbar ('bar' - Gaelic for height, therefore 'high' hall) is in an Act of Parliament in 1581 ratifying the transfer of the Barony of Braidwood to Harie Stewart of Gogar, brother of the Earl of Arran.

This fine example of a defensive tower was was built in response to a 1535 Act of Parliament directing those with land to the value of 100 pounds in the area to construct a tower, thirty-foot square, to protect his household from the English Border raiders.
