Barr Tower Barr was built in 1520. There are remnants of a walled courtyard and the top parapet has been knocked off for safety. All the windows and doors are barred. The tower sits in a pasture overlooking Barr Loch. There is a lintel above the entrance doorway with the date of 1690 on it.

The tower has four floors and the remains of a parapet. The basement contained the kitchen. First floor was the great hall while the remaining two floors held two private chambers each.
