Built of local red sandstone in the 16th century, Seafield Tower lies between Kinghorn and Kirkcaldy in Fife, Scotland. The lands of Seafield and Markinch were granted to Robert Multrare by James II of Scotland in 1443. The lands and the tower remained in the ownership of the Multrare (or Moultrie as the family name became) until 1631 when the lands were sold to James Law then Archbishop of Glasgow. With Law's death in 1632 ownership of the tower becomes lost but eventually it passed into the hands of the Methven family. Its last owner was Methven of Raith who abandoned it in 1733.
The tower was believed to be five stories high with walls 5 feet (1.5 m) thick and maximum internal dimensions of 20 feet 2 inches (6.1 m) by 14 feet 4 inches (4.4 m).
