Subject notes
Bridgeness Tower was built as a windmill in 1750 by the Cadells, to grind the corn from Grange farm. A circular stair-tower was attached later and it was converted to a house for a shipmaster and his wife. It was also used as an observatory.

It was harled, with brick parapets added in 1895 by Hippolyte Blanc when it was converted into a flat for H M Cadell. A further conversion was undertaken in 1988 by W A Cadell Architects as part of the development of a group of two-storey houses.
