I am wondering what some of the best castles are to see in Scotland, and whether you can stay overnight in them. Approximately how much does it cost to stay in them?

What are neeps and tatties?

What kinds of fish are good to eat in Scotland?

There are several in and around Inverness. Inverness castle doubles as the court house these days but its not really very impressive. Urquart castle is ruins on the shore of Loch Ness. Cawdor castle is famous due to Macbeth (Thane of Cawdor) and Brodie Castle is reasonably impressive.

Photo is on the way....sent it too your folks house. don't know how long it will take though.

Cawdor and Brodie Castles sound fascinating...maybe we could go together when I come to Scotland, and then I'll take you to lunch or dinner I'm going home for 1 night on 12/7...photo should be there then...it doesn't take that long!!! Thank you for sending it mate. Cindy x
