Scotland is famous for her castles and justifiably so. highlights some of the best castles in Scotland - the most famous Scottish castles are featured as well as some more unusual ones. Medieval towers and keeps are what most people think of when they have an image of a traditional Scottish castle, but of course there are many other styles of castles and castellated mansions in Scotland too.

Many Scottish castles are now tourist attractions and open to the public - so you can visit romantic ruins or well-restored Border keeps. A lot are in the care of The National Trust for Scotland or Historic Scotland. Some castles are now hotels and so have of course been restored to great comfort - the architectural purity may have been slightly lost along the way but they are still wonderful buildings to visit or stay in. Many privately-owned castles are available to hire for a wedding or a party - having a wedding in a Scottish castle is very popular as it is a quintessentially romantic location.
