Take a whistle-stop tour through 700 years of Scottish history at Scotland’s largest and oldest keep, the ancestral home of the influential Erskine family, the Earls of Mar and Kellie.

The walls of this medieval tower tell some incredible stories and even come complete with their own dungeon! As you explore the tower’s four floors, you’ll hear tales of an abbot’s curse, crib ghosts, fortunes and titles lost and regained, and the building’s ruin and restoration.

The tower is packed with arresting architectural anomalies, such as the stone well built into the tower walls and the magnificent vaulted beamed ceiling. You will see artworks on display by Henry Raeburn and Van Dyck, along with precious china, silverware, period costumes and furnishings.

The ancestral home of the Erskine family, the Earls of Mar and Kellie, Alloa Tower is one of Scotland’s largest surviving medieval tower houses. It has been altered over the centuries and is now an 18th-century mansion contained within a medieval shell. The Tower is home to an important collection of portraits, silver and furniture, which are loaned from the family’s private collections.
