Watchtowers were erected to provide guardianship and protection; therefore, they were built in the vicinity of the borders of a principality, or a county or a country.
Currently, the most common functions of watchtowers and stations is accommodation. They are a sort of campsites and camping sites. In some scouts' watchtowers, scout camps are organized. But the most popular type are sailing or fishing stations, or a combination of those two.
