Nelson’s Tower, Forres

It’s a bank holiday weekend, so I did a little travelling around beautiful Morayshire. I made it successfully to Forres, where Nelson’s Tower was luring me from afar. And what a nice structure it is:

Nelson\'s Tower

Apparently built to celebrate Lord Nelson’s successful battle at Cape Trafalgar (that of course killed himself), the foundations for the building were laid in 1806 and the structure was finished seven years later.  Perched on Cluny Hill and 21 meters high, it gives you gorgeous views over the Moray Firth and the Grampian Mountains.

It’s also a nice and easy cardiovascular workout.
