Clackmannan Tower is a five-storey tower house, situated at the summit of King's Seat Hill in Clackmannan, Clackmannanshire, Scotland. It dates back to at least the 14th century, when it was inhabited by King David II of Scotland, and David is recorded as selling it to his cousin Robert Bruce in 1359.

Very interesting to find out how the the tower came about ,what it was used for and the guide was brill
Great place. Well worth a visit
Not much to do but on a fine day it is peaceful and enjoys spectacular views. The tower isn't open but the external structure is interesting. The grounds offer panoramic views of the area and if the weather is clement, you couldn’t ask for a better picnic location. Parking is on street and be careful of the cattle grid, although there is a gate to bypass it.
Beautiful place, but BEWARE THE COWS 😂
Nice tower in well kept grounds, decent views around it. Again, pity it can't be entered.
You can only see the externals of the tower. Very little information on it at the site itself.
Interesting piece of industrial heritage. Many attempts at repair through the decades as you see different brickwork.
Muddy when wet but fantastic views towards the Ochils on one side and over to Kincardine bridge on the other. A notice board at the entry gate from Clackmannan gives a brief history. No access to the inner sanctum though.
This is a great place to walk however wear boots or muddy shoes as this is on a working farm and there are cowpatts hidden in the long grass. There are also no solid paths to walk on and you can't enter the tower as it is unsafe. I'm not trying to make it sound bad I just want people to know what they are visiting. It's not like the nearby alloa tower which is fully furnished inside and is set in a nice park.
