Abernethy Tower in Perth, Scotland The round tower built in the early 9th century, is one of only two such towers in Scotland, the other being at Brechin. Built by the monks from the nearby monastery and has served several purposes; as a place of refuge, as a belfry and as a sepulchral - several skeletons have been unearthed within the building. Attached to the outer wall, medieval iron collar and chain can be seen and there is part of a Pictish sculpture stone at the foot of the Tower.

Highland games are events held throughout the year in Scotland & other countries as a way of celebrating Scottish & Celtic culture & heritage, especially that of the Scottish Highlands. Certain aspects of the games are so well known as to have become emblematic of Scotland, such as the bagpipes, kilt, & the heavy events, especially the caber toss. The games also include entertainment & exhibits related to other aspects of Scottish & Gaelic culture.
