Duke of Gordon's Monument
Duke of Gordon's Monument
This impressive 90 feet tall pillar stands on the crest of the attractively wooded ridge of Torr Alvie at an altitude of 358 metres. It is a prominent landmark visible for miles around and correspondingly is a superb viewpoint.
It was erected in 1840 to the memory of the 5th and last Duke of Gordon.
