Round Tower of Uig - Isle of Skye, Scotland

Round Tower of Uig - Isle of Skye, Scotland

This stone tower was constructed around 1860 for Major William Fraser, owner of Kilmuir estate from 1855. Uig Lodge washed away in a flood in 1877 and this tower remains over the bay in Uig on the northwest side of the Isle of Skye. It is said the castle-like tower was once used as a tax collection point.
