Nelson's Tower - tour

Watch a new live video tour of the tower on Saturday 19th September at 10am.

Standing high on Cluny Hill, Nelson’s Tower looks down, with some presence, over Forres. 

As the building is closed right now, the Forres Heritage Trust which looks after the monument wanted to ensure that you can still get a chance to take in the stunning view from the top of the tower in the virtual tour.

A recording of the live virtual tour will also be available to view after that time/date.
