The costs of the original 1790 build were met by the town’s Common Good Fund and the sole purpose of the building was to contain the Town Clock.  In 1894 the tower was heightened, and the clock raised to its present position at the top of the square sandstone tower.  Above the doorway is a large barometer, dated 1852, which was of immense benefit to the local fishing industry.  The Clock Tower was also the site of one of the town’s public water supplies in the 19th century.  The Tower was refurbished in 2015, (which gained the annual Conservation Award from the Aberdeen Society of Architects) and has now been re-opened as a tourist attraction.
