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.

Some of these buildings have disappeared over time, others have become crumbling ruins, and many have been maintained in superb condition. Below is a list
of some of the more notable castles that can be seen in Scotland.
