Ellen's Tower

Set on a stretch of dramatic sea cliffs which face the islets of South Stack a castellated, cliff-top folly, commanding spectacular views to seaward. The building is square in plan with a rather advanced tower at the south-east corner. The walls are of roughcast rubble, the flat roof is fringed by crenellations. There are loopholes of questionable utility. Currently used as an information centre and observation tower by the RSPB. In spring, guillemots, razorbills and puffins breed on the iconic cliffs.  The rare chough can be seen swooping along the cliffs all year round.
