The property on which Whittingehame Tower stands was acquired by the Douglas family in the 14th century, but the tower is more likely late 15th or early 16th century. However it may incorporate parts of an earlier structure.
It is rectangular in plan, with a protruding staircase jamb to the north, and is three storeys high, with a castellated parapet.
It has been restored and is in use as a residence.
