Facts

  • The tower is the world's only building which is capable of rotating 360 degrees from the ground up.
  • Tallest free-standing structure in Scotland.
  • The aerodynamics of the tower allows the whole structure to turn to face the direction of the wind which reduces wind resistance and thus allows for the structure's slender profile.
  • The observation platform can accommodate up to 25 visitors at a time.
