About Smailholm Tower
This site is closed until Spring 2021. Historic Scotland are working hard to gradually reopen the places you love while making sure the experience is safe for everyone.
Visit a place that inspired Sir Walter Scott. Ancestors of the great Romantic novelist had called the tower home, and Scott learned the power of border ballads as a young infant living on the estate.
