050 No vestige of this ancient tower now remains to mark the spot whereon it once Stood; more than 30 years have elapsed since it was [entirely] levelled with the ground, for the [purpose] of employing the stones in the constru[ction] of Kilkerran old Kennells, East of which [it] stood at the distance of 176 yards. Its [place] is still pointed out by the oldest inhabitant of the district. (It is uncertain at [what] time the Kennedies of Drummellan became a [separate] [family] Two Sons of the old Coiff or Cove (Culzean) branch of the Kennedies settled it is believed, during the reign of David [II] on the girvan water, & built for themselves strong houses or towers, the one at Barclomadean & the other at Drummellan both on the south side of the Girvan. The tower of Barclanachan [stood] on the ground now occupied by the house of Kilkerran. Drummellane tower [stood] by the river opposite to the house of Drumbaile which was at a recent period [owned] by one of the family.) Extracted from Paterson's History of Ayrshire (1847)
