A tower belonging to Hobbie Elliot once stood in this area but nothing of it now remains.
The tower is marked as “Hobbie of Glenvore” on a map of 1590 which appeared in “An atlas of England and Wales, made by Christopher Saxton”, a book owned by William Cecil, 1st Baron Burghley, and commonly referred to as The Burghley Atlas.
“A few years” before 1912 “a piece of very substantial masonry” was found “whilst digging in the stack-yard a little to the west” of Fiddleton Bankend cottage, which may have come from the tower.
