Scottish Castles

Scottish Castles Through History...

The importance of each type of castle is explained and castle life, defences and their role in Scottish history also feature.

Castle PhotographsCastle: Heritage, History, Heraldry Britain and Ireland are full of castles, some still lived in, some reduced to little more than lumps and bumps in the landscape. Many of them have been the scene of great historical events - battles, sieges, executions, negotiations, kidnappings and betrayals. All have a story to tell. Their stories are often bloody and grim, but today most castles are fascinating and romantic places to visit. They include Windsor, a vast and rambling warren that would still be recognised by Medieval visitors; Carreg Cennen, a fabulous ruin complete with cliff-side 'secret' tunnel set in breathtaking landscapes in the mountains of Wales; Hermitage in the Scottish Lowlands where Mary Queen of Scots rode alone to visit her secret lover; and Blarney, most famous for its stone that you have to kiss in order to gain eloquence, but also one of Ireland's most impressive castles.

The Magnificent Castle of Culzean

The Magnificent Castle of Culzean and... the Kennedy Family. Culzean castle on the Ayrshire coast is the most visited property of the National Trust for Scotland. Built in the late 16th century above a network of caves, the castle became a centre for smuggling during the 18th century. Sir Thomas Kennedy, 9th Earl of Cassillis, went on an extended grand tour in the 1750s and returned full of ideas as to how to improve his vast estates and home. His brother and heir commissioned Robert Adam to create his masterpiece and became bankrupt as a result. The estate was rescued when wealthy American cousins inherited it in 1792. Archibald Kennedy, 1st Marquess of Ailsa, completed the house and lavished money on the property. Produced in association with the National Trust for Scotland, this volume tells the whole history of the castle. Michael Moss has carried out extensive research, drawing on estate records, original plans and family correspondence to create a major history of the castle and an account of the running of a Scottish country estate.
