Scotland's castles - buildings of treachery, romance, war and peace - play an important part in Scotland's history. In the first volume of this fascinating series, we enjoy a whistle stop introduction to Scotland's great castles, and explore explore the majesty of Edinburgh Castle, and look at Eilean Donan Castle, Castle Levin, Glamis Castle, Fort George and Stirling Castle.

 

Castle Levan Castle Levan, overlooking the banks of the River Clyde, was built around 1430. The Pearson family live here. At first sight it appears to be a romantic 16th century town house but the present structure started as a massive 14th century tower that was later extended in the 15th century. Glamis Castle in Angus, made famous by Shakespeare's Macbeth, has been the family home of the Earls of Strathmore and Kinghorne since 1372 when Sir John Lyon was granted the thaneage of Glamis by King Robert II. Near Inverness, Fort George is the most considerable fortress in Britain.

 

Fyvie Castle in Aberdeenshire - one part of a chain of royal fortresses, now stands as one of the most important historic buildings in Scotland. William the Lion was here in 1211, Alexander the 2nd was granted charter here 11 years later and Robert the Bruce dispensed justice in a nearby wood. Castle Fraser near the river Donne is one of the grandest of the Scottish towerhouses. Built between 1565 and 1635 it has all the classic details of Scottish baronial architecture. It has the air of a French chateau in which every view is different.
Kinloch Castle on the Hebridian Island of Rum was built as an equivalent of the modern day Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch. It was built in 1897 by George Bullogh, an English playboy. The house is filled with hunting paraphernalia of exquisite detail.The building remains as a perfect snapshot of wealthy life at the turn of the century. Once known as the forbidden island, it was restricted only to a wealthy minority. Culzean Castle on the Ayrshire coast. The architect's Robert Adam's final masterpiece. Over a period of 15 years between 1777 and 1792, he converted a medieval tower house into a magnificent Edwardian home, using battlements as decoration.
