Lambswell Folly

Raith Estate in Fife lies a mile (1.5 km) west of Kirkcaldy. The estate was acquired in the 17th century by the Fergusons who built Raith House in 1693-96. The architect was James Smith (1645 – 1731), who is said to have consulted Sir William Bruce on the designs. In 1785, James Playfair (1755-94) was responsible for extending and remodelling the house. Raith remains in the same family, now the Munro-Fergusons. Raith also lends its name to Raith Rovers, a local football team whose home ground is at Stark’s Park in Kirkcaldy.

Within the Raith Estate there were three follies built. Lambswell, an early 19th century, 2-stage rubble folly with gothic arches built into the gable end of a farmhouse, lies due west of the mansion. Balwearie Tower, south-east of Raith House on the Tiel Burn, is virtually identical to Lambswell and the ornate Torbain Tower adjoining a farm building to the north east of Raith House.
