Scottish Baronial

The architecture of 16th- and 17th-century Scottish fortified houses, with their crow-stepped gables and conical-roofed corner turrets, is sometimes described as Scottish Baronial. Mackintosh himself used the term in this way, but it is more often used to describe Victorian buildings that imitate these features.
