Lennox Tower, Edinburgh and the Lothians
Location: between Balermo and Currie (map and directions)
History of Lennox TowerBuilt by the Earls of Lennox in the 15th century, Lennox Tower was a rectangular tower, though the only part remaining today is the basement. Nearby there was a tunnel connecting the castle to Lymphoy House.
James VI used Lennox Tower as a base for hunting, while both Mary Queen of Scots and Regent Morton visited the castle. Much later Lennox Tower was acquired by George Heriot before crumbling into ruins.
Today the tower is said to be haunted by a white lady, supposedly a daughter-in-law of the family at Lymphoy House from hundreds of years before.
