Castles of Scotland

The early years of Scotland's often troublesome history are partly concealed in the mists of time, and historians are unsure about some of the events which took place. From the beginning of time man's inability to live in peaceful co-existence with his neighbours has led to the need for him to build defences to protect himself and those in his care against a sometimes hostile world. The Scottish countryside is as rich as anywhere in Europe with mighty fortresses and fortified towerhouses providing concrete evidence of such endeavours. Produced for you here is a selection of the finest castles of Scotland, from far in the North to the border country. Please enjoy your trek back in time.
