Brechin Tower has a decorative carved doorway and is capped by a stone roof which was added in the 15th century. Visitors can enjoy views of the exterior of the tower and also visit the adjacent Brechin Cathedral. There is a magnificent collection of carved stones in the church together with some remarkable grave stones.
