Abernethy Tower
Abernethy Tower
This tower and the similar tower at Brechin are the only two round towers of the Irish Celtic type in Scotland. The Romanesque belfry windows suggest that this tower was built in the later 11th century. Long before this Abernethy was important as a principal seat of the Pictish kingdom and the seat of a Celtic bishopric. It was at Abernethy in 1072 that William the Conqueror met King Malcolm Canmore.
