Little Pinkerton (possible) (site of)
Little Pinkerton is the site of a possible castle which belonged to the Pinkerton family.
In 1493 Archibald Campbell, 2nd Earl of Argyll, was granted the lands of Mekill and Litill Pinkartone and 6 merkland of Fullfurd as heir of his late father, Colin.
Litle Pinkertoun is marked as a tower on Adair’s late 17th century map.
I have placed the site of the tower of Little Pinkerton farmhouse pending further research.
