Nelson Tower was built by the Forres Trafalgar Club to commemorate Nelson and the Battle of Trafalgar. From the top it affords spectacular views of the town and Findhorn Bay while it overlooks the town from the summit of Cluny Hill.

The tower is a short walk (ten to fifteen minutes) from the car park up to the top of Cluny Hill, along well maintained paths. When you get to the tower you will be able to climb the 96 steps to the viewing area on the roof. Please take care inside the tower as the floor and stairs have uneven stone surfaces.
