'The Wallace Tower, Aberdeen', or Benholm's Lodge as it is more correctly known, commemorates the location of the building as it was before 1964 in the Nether Kirkgate. It was moved to make way for Marks and Spencer's new store and they paid the full cost to relocate it to Seton Park in Tillydrone where it remains today.
