Today most of Scotland’s castles are dramatic ruins. It can be hard to imagine their bare stone rooms full of life, colour and sound but these castles were once home to thriving communities. Every castle has stories to tell.
Through the medieval age Scotland’s castles evolved from defensive timber towers with wooden palisades to massive stone fortresses and tower houses. Eventually the Scots built more comfortable and lavish castles, importing ideas from French chateaux.
