2017-06-07 (Day 158) Bo’ness Doocote

The doccote (dovecote) stands rather incongruously in the middle of Kinnigairs Park, in Bo’ness.

It is a Category B listed building and according to the listing is probably late 17th century with alterations in the 18 or 19th centuries to hold winding gear for a nearby pit. It belonged to the Old Grange House, the seat of the Cadell family.
