Fascinating Scottish Castles

For centuries the inhabitants of Scotland have been building fortifications and strongholds of one kind or another. It wasn't long before magnificent castles sprung up, their glorious towers reaching for the heavens. It seems that anyone who could afford this sort of protection for their families and forces made sure that they had it. It has been estimated that there were once about 3,000 castles Scotland and plenty of evidence remains to suggest this is true.

Of course, these buildings differed in size, condition and purpose, yet they all served a very real purpose. Many of these have disappeared over time and others have become crumbling ruins, but whatever their condition they stand as a silent witness to times gone by. Below is a list of some of the more notable castles that can be seen in Scotland.
