Clackmannan Tower
Clackmannan Tower
Clackmannan Tower is one of the five historical sites on the Clackmannanshire Tower Trail. It stands on King's Seat Hill overlooking the Forth Valley.
In 1359, David II granted Clackmannan to Sir Robert Bruce. The earliest part of the tower (the lower storeys of the main wing) was probably built soon afterwards. In the 15th century the building was raised to its present height and the taller south wing was constructed. The tower was abandoned c.1800.
Clackmannan Tower is a Category A listed building. LinkExternal link
