Alloa Tower was the medieval residence of the Erskine family, later Earls of Mar. Dating from the 14th century, it retains original timber roof and battlements. The Tower is the largest and one of the earliest Scottish tower houses. It  retains internal medieval features. The tower was incorporated into a larger classical house from the 17th century onwards but those additions have been demolished, leaving the Tower standing alone again.
