A History and Guide to Scottish Castles
At one time, Scotland was home to more than 4,000 castles. It's an extraordinary number for such a small country and today, around 3,000 still stand. From the triangular-shaped Caerlaverock Castle in Dumfries and Galloway to the imposing New Slains Castle in Aberdeenshire, and from the magnificent fortress that dominates the Edinburgh skyline to the haunting battlements on the banks of Loch Ness, each tower tells a story, every turret holds a secret and, together, they span centuries of fascinating history. This book explores the architecture and legends associated with these fascinating fortresses.
