  1. What an incredible structure and lovely surprise! Why is it called the Lady’s Tower?

    • I’ve heard different stories and rumours involving lovers trysts and smugglers but I think the true story is that Lady Janet Anstruther, wife of the Laird of Ardross and Ellie estate, built Lady’s Tower at Ruby Bay as her summerhouse and changing room for use when she went sea bathing. She sent a bell-ringer around the town each time she went swimming to warn the townsfolk to keep away! Allegedly you can still find rubies of Ruby Bay but I’ve never been lucky!
