Amisfield Tower & The Johnstone Family
Historians have indicated that a tower existed on the site in the early 13th century but the current tower you see before you was reputed to have been built by Sir John Charteris in about the year 1600. The date AD 1600 (during the reign of James VI) is engraved over the main entrance. The tower is one of several built along the Scottish border to keep the English from stealing the Scottish cattle & sheep. In the Tower, is a bedchamber in which King James VI is said to have slept on his way to England. The property was bought by the Johnstone family in the early 1930s and to this day continues to be their family home in Dumfriesshire.
Jamie & Emma Johnstone have opened the doors of their beautiful family home to share with prospective couples & have worked hard to create a wonderful setting, for your wedding day.
