Kennet (site of)
Kennet was a tower house dating back to at least the 16th century which was replaced by (or incorporated in) an 18th century mansion, itself demolished in the 20th century.
It appears on Pont’s late 16th century map as a castle named Kennets, but the lands of Kennet had been owned by the Bruce family from 1389. It is marked on Adair’s late 17th century map as a substantial castle, with a similar symbol to the castle of Tulliallan and Hartshaw.
Robert Bruce commissioned the architect Thomas Harrison to build him a new house which was constructed between 1793 and 1794. Whether or not this house incorporated any earlier building I have not as yet been able to ascertain.
Kennet House was demolished in 1967 and the site now lies within a field.
