Scotland’s Castles

The first castles in Scotland were seen in the 11th and 12th century and reflected Anglo-Norman designs. The initial motte and baily castles were superseded by stone built castles in the 1200’s and by the late 17 century these were replaced by tower houses, favoured by rich landowners. Our castle tours weave through history and we can take you to castles from all the different eras. Although there are many outstanding castles both from an architectural and visual perspective we have listed our favourite castles below.

Balmoral Castle

Based in Royal Deeside, Balmoral castle was Queen Victoria’s Scottish retreat and to this very day the Royal Family still reside there. When the castle is not in residence it is open to the general public and one can explore the exquisite ballroom and immaculate gardens.

Cawder Castle
