near to Brechin, Angus, Great Britain

Door to Brechin Round Tower
Door to Brechin Round Tower
The door is 6 feet above ground level making it harder for attackers as the tower is where the towns folk went with all their valuables. The arch is carved from one stone. The figure at the top is Christ on the cross. The figures on either side are unknown saints and the doorway is protected by a beast on either side at the bottom.
