Scolpaig Tower - Close-up
Scolpaig Tower - otherwise known as MacLeod's Folly is a Georgian folly built over the remains of an Iron age dun (fort). It was erected in 1830 by Dr Alexander MacLeod as part of famine relief efforts presumably giving locals work for which they then received money or food.
The octagonal tower is built in the Gothic style and sits on a tiny islet in Loch Scolpaig. To see it in its landscape see NF7375 : Scolpaig Tower in Loch Scolpaig
