Tower Trail

Historical Tour

Clackmannanshire, Loch Lomond, The Trossachs & The Forth Valley

    Tower Trail follows the route of impressive tower buildings of Clackmannanshire telling story of the past Scots and medieval Scotland.

    The trail is a great survival of the heritage of medieval Scotland as it covers five impressive sites, including four towers and a manor house.

    Built by the aristocrats in the late 14th and 15th century, they were once homes to the most influential people who shaped the region. The tall tower houses are located near the royal court in Stirling and served partly for defense but mainly as a way of showing off their status, wealth and style of their owners.

    The trail encompasses Alloa Tower, Castle Campbell, Clackmannan Tower, Sauchie Tower and Menstrie Castle built by the families of Erskine, Campbell, Bruce, Schaw and Alexander respectively, and each of them is unique and tells its own fascinating story.
