  • The Nelson Tower was built in remembrance of Trafalgar. There were quite a few locals on HMS Victory apparently. The Tower is run by volunteers and the entrance is by donation. A museum is presently being assembled and there are excellent views from the tower. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Known locally as the witches tower great views, and a cool insight into local history as well as an awesome walk through picturesque cluny hill wood, Many different paths criss cross the wood most leading to and from Grant park with its swings, roundabouts and climbing frames catering for the kids after a lovely walk to the tower. Great on a summers day.
  • Good walk up a steep hill through a lovely park. Great views at the top.
  • A must visit the history of the tower and the views are breathing
  • Great views from the top when open during the summer. 1400 till 1600
