Wallace Tower

Built in the early 1600s by Sir Robert Keith of Benholm and so previously known as Benholm’s Lodgings, some still refer to the tower by this name, but it’s now been called Wallace Tower for more than a century. But the name isn’t the only thing to have changed. While visitors will now head to the south-west entrance of Seaton Park to see Wallace Tower, it’s only been in that spot since the 1960s. Before then, the tower sat neatly in Netherkirkgate in the heart of the city. However, due to a desire for a store expansion by Marks and Spencer, the retail giant demolished Wallace Tower, stone by stone, relocated and rebuilt it in its current location.
