Does anyone know what this fascinating tower belonged to?

It's simply marked as a chimney on this 1947 Map

Could be the chimney for the Tollcross Tramway depot, they were originally rope hauled so there would have been a large stationary engine and chimney somewhere.

Fascinating tower shows up in a number of aerial shots however it appears as a plain chimney without the extension on the top. No idea if this is just a trick in the photograph but I agree it looks like an extended part added onto the top in this shot.

Interesting to note how much Fettes College stands in splendid isolation from the urban sprawl.
