Lonely Planet review for Hackness Martello Tower
On the south headland of Longhope Bay stands a Martello tower, built in 1814 to protect convoys heading for the Baltic during the Napoleonic Wars (there's another, less well preserved, on the bay's northern headland). The tower and its adjacent gun battery have been extensively restored, and house exhibits detailing 19th-century barrack-room life.
