Tower In Jedburgh, Borders
A 16th century ruined tower house belonging to the Hume family, who were a powerful Border clan.
There are loads of little tower houses dotted around the borders between Scotland and England and when on our travels we found a canny one with Fulton Tower.
In the 18th century, Fulton Tower was abandoned and fell into ruin. The tower is now a scheduled monument, which means that it is protected by law. The tower is open to the public and can be visited by following a footpath from the road.
Fulton Tower is a fascinating example of a 16th century tower house. The tower is well-preserved and provides a glimpse into life on the Scottish Borders.
The tower is in a field which appears to owned by the nearby farm. As Scotland is right to roam, then you are fine to wander up, but always be respectuful of the land including livestock and crops.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.More Places from Simon
