Castles To Visit On Your Vacation In Scotland
What comes to mind when you think of a castle? Is it the hauntingly beautiful site of these stoic monuments to the past standing tall over the landscape below? Tales of Royalty, Kings, and Queens who have made them their home and the scandals that took place within their walls? Centuries of history, famous battles, and political statesmanship, or simply the fact that many of them look like they have been dreamed into existence from the pages of an enduring fairytale?
Whether the answer is one or all of the above, Scotland has multiple stunning castles that fit the description.
We have listed some of the most internationally famous Castles below, however, if you are planning a custom tour of Scotland then simply send us an online inquiry and we can let you know which special castles or hidden gems you should visit with your driver-guide.
One of the largest, most important, and best-preserved castles, not only in Scotland - but the world! Before the union with England, many of Scotland’s Kings and Queens were crowned here and the castle has seen numerous wars and sieges making it essential for both architecture and history fans alike.
Proudly overlooking the nation’s capital city, Edinburgh Castle is one of the oldest, attractive, & most fortified places in Europe. Alongside hosting the Scottish Crown Jewels & the Stone of Destiny, the Castle has an exciting tale to tell, whether as a Royal residence, military garrison, or more ominously, as a prison & fortress.
Ever since 1852 it was purchased for Queen Victoria by Prince Alberts, Balmoral Castle has been the Scottish home of the royal family - and to this day the Queen will spend at least one week of the year here. This Royal castle makes for a fantastic tour and one you simply cannot miss!
