The Forres Heritage Trust has two buildings open for Moray Doors Open Day.
The Tolbooth – 12-4pm
Delve into the past on this whistle stop tour of the Tolbooth. You will start your visit old police office, pop into the cells, get a glimpse of the court room and step out on to the parapet of the clocktower to enjoy the beautiful views across the town of Forres.
Guided tours will be on a first come, first served basis and numbers will be limited to six per tour. Please be patient with the volunteers at busy times. This will be a truncated version of the full tour which can be booked for a fee if you wish.
Nelson’s Tower – 12-4pm
Come and conquer Nelson’s Tower and enjoy one of the best views across Moray. Completed in 1812 in memory of Admiral Nelson, the tower offers fantastic views over Forres and surrounds. With artefacts, a children’s quiz and volunteers on hand to answer questions, a visit to the Tower is a great trip out!
Forres Heritage Trust is responsible for the management and maintenance of the Tolbooth and Nelson’s Tower in Forres having taken over responsibility from the Council back in 2013.
