Borůvka is the third wooden observation tower (with a metal staircase and lookout platform) in the Toulovcové Maštale territory. It is located to the southwest from the town of Hluboká, and was opened to the public in June 2005. At first glance visitors are impressed with the tower’s unique construction, which rises to the height of 18.5 metres. Seventy stairs lead to the lookout platform located at the height of 15 metres. From this height visitors are treated to views of the Maštale region, Skuteč, Chrudim, Pardubice, the Orlické Mts., the Bohemia-Moravian Highlands, and the Železné Mts. With good visibility Mt. Praděd in the Jeseníky Mts. as well as the Krkonoše Mts. can be seen.
