In 1645, Smailholm became the property of the Scotts of Harden, who replaced the outer hall and chamber in the west court with a two-storey house, its height being marked by a raggle, or groove, in the west wall of the tower house which would have received the edge of its roof. At about the same time, the barmkin wall enclosing the east court was demolished and replaced with a much less substantial structure. Apparently, an 'old dowager lady' lived at Smailholm at the beginning of the 18th century and when she died, the site was finally deserted in favour of more comfortable accommodation at Sandyknowe farmhouse, where Sir Walter Scott spent his childhood.

The gun loop, which is of the inverted keyhole variety, was intended to defend the doorway below.

Note the remains of the arched gateway that gave access to the west courtyard. an arched doorway at ground level on the south side, which was defended by an outer wooden door with an iron yett immediately behind it.
