Tower - More Photos
Writers have described the area surrounding the tower as one of wild
beauty. Notice the sheep and cows grazing in the background toward the
south of the hillsides.
This photo was taken from the south-west corner of
the Tower looking west to the Ruberslaw Mountain that rises to a height
of 1392 feet. In the 1600's, this mountain provided a hiding place for
the persecuted Covenanters.
This closeup shows the fine red sandstone used to build
the tower. Notice on the right-hand side of the photo (the south-east corner
of the tower) the remnants of the circular newel staircase that was used
to access the upper floors.
In June 1995, participants in the Fulton reunion visited
the Fulton Tower. Pictured here from left to right are: Roberta (Fulton)
Hirth, Florence (Fulton) Wolfe, Homer J. Fulton, and Dean Sigle.
