When the committee called for tenders from building contractors, all the submissions for the three best-rated entries exceeded the budget and were therefore rejected. Finally, a tender by Hugh Dixon from Newtownards for the fourth project was accepted. Such a tower was considered especially suitable for a Stewart as the Stewarts or Stuarts ruled Scotland during the times when peel towers were erected.
The 5th Baron Dufferin and Claneboye , a neighbour of the Londonderrys, had recently built Helen's Tower , also in the Scottish Baronial style, on the next hill to the north of Scrabo: the new tower was to have more than double the height of theirs.
A gilt-framed picture of the Scrabo Tower, which seems to be a coloured-in wood engraving, is preserved at Mount Stewart. It gives an artist's view of the Londonderry Monument, showing three towers linked by two short stretches of crenellated wall. The others are much smaller. Wood engravings similar to this picture have been published in the Illustrated London News   and the Dublin Builder.
It seems that these pictures represent the original project before simplification to cut cost. Lynn's obituary in the Irish Builder attributes the design to Lynn. The foundation stone was laid on 27 February by Sir Robert Bateson and blessed by the Church of Ireland bishop of the diocese on demand by William Sharman Crawford , chairman of the Building Committee, in a ceremony attended by the 4th Marquess, his wife, many members of the gentry, and a crowd of residents and tenants.
The construction generally followed the accepted plans, but the tower's height was shortened and its form was simplified by omitting the crenellated walls and the wing towers. In the Dublin Builder somewhat belatedly published an article about the tower. The author's purpose seems to have been to defend Lanyon and the Londonderrys against accusations of having rigged the competition. The tower is massive and imposing, symbolizing landlord power. After the tower's completion in , William McKay, a foreman of the quarry, moved into the tower as caretaker.
His family ran a tearoom in the tower until  despite the lack of water at the top of the hill. The tower and the grounds on which it stands were then acquired by the state. The tower's style is called Scottish Baronial by most recent authors. The tower consists of a base, a main body and a crenellated and turreted roof. The base contains the ground floor. It has battered sloped outer surfaces. The main body has vertical walls. The limit between the base and the main body is marked by a sandstone belt course.
The base and the main body are square in plan and comprise a round stair tower that projects from the southeast corner. The tower's square part is surmounted by a short setback cylindrical storey that is covered with a steep conical roof. The transition from square to round is achieved by a platform decorated with four corner turrets linked by machicolated battlements.
The turrets are round and also wear steep conical roofs. The five roofs are entirely built in lapped stone courses.Ravel essentially reimagined how to write for the piano with each significant work.
