Alloa Tower
Alloa Tower
The ancestral home of Earls of Mar and Kellie, built in 1497 and modified in 18th century. Alloa Tower is one of the largest surviving medieval tower houses in Scotland. It was home to the 6th Earl of Mar, who led the 1715 Jabobite Rebellion.
Equally ill-fated was Mary, Queen of Scots, who stayed here briefly. The interiors feature original oak beams and roof vaulting, along with a fine collection of art. Less salubrious is a pit dungeon. There are fabulous views from the rooftop walk.
