B.O.T.D. 25 Clackmannan Tower

Clackmannan Tower dates from c1360 and was built by the Bruce family. In the 15th century the building was raised to tower height and the taller south wing was constructed. A new mansion was built to the west of the tower in the late 16th century and in the 17th century further changes were made to the tower. Lady Catherine Bruce, the last of the family, lived in the mansion until her death in 1791.

And did you know that Robert Burns was knighted here?
