Elcho Doocote

Elcho Doocote Rynd Perth Scotland
Located close to Elcho Castle stands a circular dovecote. Inside are nesting boxes, and in the centre of the floor a socket that once held a revolving ladder, called a potence. The servants climbed the ladder to collect the pigeon eggs and meat, valued food in these days.
