Smailholm Tower Guidebook


Smailhome Tower has stood on top of a crag for five centuries, with a looming, dramatic look that has won over visitors for many years.

In this souvenir guide, Chris Tabraham takes you through the history of the four-storey tower, which acted as a home, protecting its inhabitants from English raiders and the elements.

Generous illustrations create a clear, vibrant picture of the tower's overall history. It is an iconic fixture on the Scottish Borders to this day. Even Sir Walter Scott described Smailhome Tower as 'standing smart and upright, like a warden'.
