    Beautiful Views small but very interesting tower. Drive up to it is on a single track road which is full of potholes.  more »

    Easy to get to if touring in the Borders. Whilst not remote the rocky location feels like it is. Good for photos.  more »

    from Smailholm Tower, we were somewhat disappointed, what had to do it with the really bad weather during our visit. We found the doll exhibition in the Tower, which the guide so praised, rather boring.

  • This is a great fortress tower. It's well maintained and offers great views of the Scottland Borders countryside. Highly recommended.
  • We stumbled across this wonderful little fort at dusk, after closing time. We spread put and explored. It was wonderful. A very well preserved castle with a violent history going back centuries. Well worth a visit.
  • So worth the hike to get here (or drive if you have a car) A fabulous Border Peel tower - breathtaking 360 degree view
  • Amazing. This is kept up so well and so original. I visit every time I come to Scotland.
  • It's okay, not great, but magic views
