Smailholm Tower
A »barmkin« is a part ...

Smailholm Tower
A »barmkin« is a part of a castle or fortified manor, commonly behind an outer wall, used, e.g., to protect cattle from reivers. The photograph shows Smailholm Tower near Kelso in the Borders; the barmkin's wall can be seen in the foreground.

The online Dictionary of the Scots Language places the earliest known appearance of the word »barmkin« in 1460; it is apparently derived from »barbican«.
