Scottish Castles

Think of Scotland, and romantic castles appear against a dramatic backdrop of highlands and lakes. It has been estimated that there were once about 3,000 castles in Scotland and while many have disappeared over time and others have become crumbling ruins, many notable castles still stand to be seen and explored. And there’s no doubt, Scotland’s castles are the ideal setting for music and storytelling, for traditional Highland Games and Clan Gatherings, for great days out - or a uniquely special weekend retreat.
