Castles and Abbeys
A variety of pictures taken by the webmaster on his travels around Scotland.
Aberdour Castle was originally built in the 12th Century but fell into disrepair in the mid 19th Century.
Balmoral castle has many close links with British Royalty. The site itself is not particularly large but gives sufficient and timely information for the visitor.
Balvennie Castle is located in Glen Fiddich and has a chequered history despite never having seen battle or siege.
Bishops Palace Caitness is likely to have been built in the mid 14th Century but nows lies in total ruin with only a few stones marking where it once stood.
Brodick Castle is based on the Island of Arran, just off the west coast of Scotland. Unfortunately the site has no pictures on it which is a pity as this is a very beautiful area.
This site is designed by the same person as the Brodick link above. This site does have pictures on it and a wealth of information. It is fast to download and is well laid out, with a wide variety of links to commercial sites.
Dean Castle is a little gem which is often overlooked. Perhaps this is because it is situated in one of the smaller local authority areas and is in a relatively small provincial town.
This site is graphic rich but is still relatively quick to download. In addition it has good links which gives information on a wide variety of castles and monuments.
No site on Castles in Scotland would be complete without reference to Edinburgh castle. This site has plenty of textual information, is well laid out and has a couple of pictures on it.
Eilean Donan Castle
This is probably the most photographed castle in Scotland. The picture on the site will show you why. An informative site with an appropriate level of information.
This is the website of the government body whose main role is to look after Scotland's built heritage. It has links to many sites and general information.
