Sauchie Tower

Sauchie Tower

Historical Feature


No votes yet

Sauchie Tower was built between 1430 and 1440 by Sir James Schaw, who came from Greenock to marry Mary de Annand, co-heiress of Sauchie. James Schaw was ‘Comptroller to the King’, the Schaws were one of the most influential families in medieval Scotland and were governors of Stirling Castle until the reign of James IV. There may have been an earlier building on the site before the present tower was built, though no evidence for this has been found so far. Sauchie Tower is comparable to the secondary wing of nearby Clackmannan Tower and has been changed very little since it was built.

Sauchie Tower is part of Clackmannanshire's Tower Trail.
