Geography
Fife
Located 3 miles NW of Burntisland.
History
The land, which belonged to the Glen family from the 13th century, passed to Sir John Boswell through marriage to Lady Mariote Glen, whose son Andrew Boswell probably built the original tower in 1477, when Balmuto and their other lands were united into the Barony of Glassmount.
This was confirmed in a charter of 1587 for Sir John Boswell, a favourite in the court of James VI and builder of its southern section in 1594.

It was further altered by a David Boswell in 1680 before being sold to the Boswells of Auchinleck in 1722, who added a mansion house in the 19th century.
