Names are recorded on as a series of regimental tablets which
were originally on display in the Tower, and could be read as one walked
up the interior steps. The iron stairway became unsafe when eroded by water.
The tablets ere then removed and mounted on stones set to resemble a
'standing stone circle'. How very appropriate!
The view of Stornoway, from the tower, isspectacular. Originally, the
design specification for the Tower, required that it be seen from all
four parishes of Lewis. It follows, therefore, that the Tower can
be seen from all districts in the town.
NOTE: the Tower has been closed for over 30 years because the internal
iron staircase is unsafe, due to corrosion.
