Being local you tend to forget whats on your doorstep. The views of the ochil hills walking round the dam are just stunning and there is plenty of nature to see.

Alloa Tower

Reviewed By BrendanEugene - Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom

Beautiful historic building which despite the total lack of direction signs, we did manage to locate. Although an explanatory film was available in the entrance area, no mention was made to us when we arrived.
This attraction is well worth a visit but seriously under sells itself.

I bought a summer pass for my grandson which was excellent value at £20 as it was valid for the whole summer holidays. He loves it there , it's a great space to let off steam. I find the drink prices quite dear. But on the whole it's a good venue.
