Alloa Tower
Alloa Tower
Alloa Tower is one of the five historical sites on the Clackmannanshire Tower Trail. It dates back to the 14th century, with 16th, 17th and late 18th century alterations, and is one of the largest surviving tower houses in Scotland. The tower was home to the Erskine family who had strong links to the Scottish Crown. They looked after Mary Queen of Scots and James VI when they were children.
In 1988, a large-scale restoration project was carried out at the tower, which saved it from ruin. The tower is now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland. It is a Category A listed building.
