Today Gilnockie Tower is the only habitable Armstrong tower which is left in existence from the original 80 - 90 Pele towers in the Eskdale and Liddesdale area that were owned by the family and enabled them to be the major force in the area. The tower was restored after 1978 and standing roofless for some years and is now home to Armstrong Clan Centre.
The museum contains information on a number of notorious Armstrong characters.
Stand atop the tower and you can see its value as a lookout post from which can be seen the Border regions of England.
