Carlops is marked as a tower on Gordon’s mid-17th century map.
The village of Carlops was founded in 1784 by Robert Brown of Newhall. Several pre-1784 maps show Carlops to the east of the main road which passes through the village and so I have placed the location of the tower at the former Carlops Quarry pending further research.
