Tour Scotland Ardclach Bell Tower

Tour Scotland Ardclach Bell Tower. The tower is fourteen feet square and contains two storeys. A straight stone stair leads from the vaulted ground floor to the upper floor. This has a fireplace, on either side of which is a square gun-loop with well splayed openings towards the interior, and a square aperture to the exterior. The side gable is also equipped with a small gun-loop. The apex of this gable is surmounted by a small belfry wherein was housed the bell which summoned the worshippers to the Parish Church of Ardclach nearby, and doubtless, also, as may be inferred from the prominent position of this little structure, gave warning to the neighbourhood in cases of alarm. The tower is dated 1655. Located eight and a half miles south-east of Nairn, west of the road to Grantown-on-Spey.
