Great Scottish Castles!

 

Scotland’s turbulent history has left an enduring mark on the landscape in shape of the many castles, fortresses and tower houses that pepper the countryside. Some – such as Edinburgh castles – rank amongst Europe’s most impressive structures while other less grand examples provide a stark insight into darker times.

All Scottish castles, however, have the power to capture the imagination which explains why they regularly top the list of ‘must-see’ attractions for visitors.
