About Liberton Tower
Liberton Tower is a 15th century tower in Edinburgh built by the Dalmahoy family, who owned the estate of Upper Liberton from around 1453.
In 1587, Liberton Tower was sold it to William Little, a Burgess of Edinburgh and, within 20 years, he commenced the building of the more comfortable Liberton House. Since then, the tower has been used mainly as a farm building, possibly as accommodation for labourers and with a byre or a piggery in the basement.
Today, Liberton Tower is owned by the Castles of Scotland Preservation Trust.
