Kinnoull Hill Tower

Kinnoull Hill Tower
A very well-known landmark: Kinnoull Tower, a folly built in the eighteenth century, by Thomas Hay, the 9th Earl of Kinnoull, to resemble castles along the Rhine he had admired in Germany during his Grand Tour of Europe. Kinnoull saw a similarity between the mountainous landscape along the Rhine and the rocky outcrops on his estate near Perth.

The light was particularly pleasant with highlights catching Deuchny hill and Binn Hill along the Carse of Gowrie as well as a natural spotlight on the tower, all simultaneously. Click :)
