River Ale, and the Steep ascent on the North, while the lairds of Riddel would furnish support on the West of this largest tower, the only remains about 60 years ago, consisted of a part of one side, which was off great thickness and strength, and of stones, which shewed that its form had rather been an oblong than a perfect square. It might easily have contained 100 men within its walls. There was also a Tower or Fortalice at Chapel, about a mile Eastward, which was taken down about 31 years ago, situated in a convenient station for watching & warding,& furnished with loop-holes for guns, arrows, or missiles; which narrowed the inside,and gradually widened outwards.
