Alloa tower is a good example of a Scottish tower house with some furnishings appropriate to the period. It is interesting but quite a small property in an urban setting.

The Alloa Tower is probably the best Tower to visit on the tower trail. There are several floors to explore and a rooftop terrace with extensive views. The minstrel's gallery and the high vaulted ceiling are particularly interesting

What a great way to learn about the history of the local battles along the river Forth, full of artefacts and pictures that relate to Central Scotland and beyond

Check opening times before visiting. Allow an hour to walk around this cleverly modified building. If you have time the knowledgeable staff will give you in- depth historical information about the former occupiers. Recommended.

We were both delighted to have found this historic gem in Alloa. The staff and guides are friendly and knowledgable. A bit of a climb to the top terrace; however, well worth the spiral stair climb. If we have visitors from abroad ... this gem...More
