Fenton Tower, a 16th-century structure in the East Lothian section of Scotland, was restored by John Macaskill, a New York banker, and Ian Simpson, a Scottish farmer. When they were children, the two men used to play in the tower ruins, which stood on the Simpson family farm.
A photo of the tower before restoration work began in 2000. It was built circa 1550, from local sandstone, then was all but destroyed by Oliver Cromwell and his army in 1620.
