Artist's Description

The castle, Clackmannan Tower, stands at the summit of King’s Seat Hill in open fields some way clear of the uphill edge of the town itself. What you find is a magnificent tower house built of golden stone, five storeys high. It was built by David II in the 1300s before being sold to a relative, Robert Bruce, in 1359.
In the 1500s the Bruce family built a large mansion alongside the tower, but this was demolished after the last member of the family died in 1791. Some of the mansion may have been recycled into the Parish Church, built in 1815 around a smaller church dating back to 1249. Mining subsidence caused part of Clackmannan Tower to collapse in 1955, but Historic Scotland have since repaired the damage and are working towards full public access: currently it is only possible to view the tower externally.
