Scottish Baronial. C19 style evolved during the Jacobethan Revival in England, with a distinctly Scottish flavour, incorporating battlements, tourelles, machicolations and conical roofs. It was derived from medieval fortified tower-houses and castles, and among its instigators were William Burn and his pupil David Bryce. It was essentially an eclectic amalgam of the traditional fortified domestic architecture of Scotland and the asymmetrical compositions common during the vogue for the Picturesque. The style was popular in Ulster, as in Scrabo Tower, Newtownards, Co. Down (1858), by Lanyon & Lynn, and several larger houses.
MacGibbon & and Ross (1887–92)
