Scotland’s 12 Most Amazing Castles

ADVERTISEMENT

Castles in Scotland are steeped in history and romance. That’s why many who travel to the wild, windswept highlands of Scotland do so for the impressive castles. Whether built by royalty, invaders, or Scottish clans, many the country’s castles, with their medieval architecture, battlefields, and ramparts still stand the test of time, and await the modern day explorer.

Here are Scotland’s twelve most amazing castles…

1. Balnagown Castle

Perched amid dense forest, windswept wooded valleys, and met by the swift current of the Balnagown River, Balnagown Castle, is located in the Invergordon area of the Highlands, in the Parish of Kilmuir Easter. This castle was once the stronghold of the Chiefs of Clan Ross.  Built in the early 14th Century, the castle lay in dilapidation from 1942 until 1972 when it was purchased by Mohamed Al-Fayed, an Egyptian business magnate, who restored the house and grounds to their former glory.
