Netherkirkgate
Wallace Tower, also known as Benholm's Lodging, Netherkirkgate. It is supposed to have been the residence, dating from 1610, of Sir Robert Keith of Benholm. "Wallace" is believed to be a corruption of "well house". It is possible that the figure in the niche was an effigy taken from St. Nicholas Churchyard. The house was demolished and was rebuilt in 1964 overlooking Seaton Park at Tillydrone. The spire of St. Nicholas East Church, which was destroyed by fire in 1874, can be seen in the background.
