[Ardclach Bell Tower]

Ardclach Bell Tower is like a miniature slice of the Mediterranean cut and pasted in the Scottish Highlands. A tiny, yellow tower on a knoll above the Findhorn Gorge now houses the bell for Ardclach parish church below, although it probably originally served as a watchtower and prison! There are two rooms to explore inside.
