NJ9308 : Wallace Tower

taken 34 years ago, near to Old Aberdeen, Aberdeen, Great Britain

Wallace Tower
Wallace Tower
Baronial building originally known as Benholm Lodgings built in the early 1600s for Sir Robert Keith of Benholm. Later was reused as a pub or Well-House from which the corruption Wallace comes from. The statue on the side of the tower is sometimes said to be the Scottish hero William Wallace due to misunderstanding the origin of the name, but this is not correct.
The building originally stood in Aberdeen the Netherkirkgate in the city centre before being rebuilt in Tillydrone.
