Things to do in Scottish Castles
With thick walls of stone and tall tower turrets, the castles of Scotland have guarded the Highlands for centuries. Many were built for defense, helping kings and dukes establish their rule over the land, while others were lavish country homes, built more for style than practical defense. Several castles have seen bloody battles and turned the tides in epic wars. They have become a steadfast part of Scottish history and are something you can’t miss!
Edinburgh Castle is one of the most famous, looming over the city on a mighty hilltop. Fans of the TV series Game of Thrones will recognize Doune Castle and watchers of Downton Abbey will have seen Inveraray Castle in a Christmas Episode. Stirling Castle is another important castle to visit, large and impressive in one of the most strategic points in the country.

Reviews Scottish Castles
“David was great! Loved the small group tour.”
“Our driver Graeme was really knowledgeable and informative-he kept us entertained the whole trip.Unbelievable scenery and amazing history!I would definitely recommend this trip!”
“Helaas heel slecht weer. Daardoor weinig zicht op de omgeving en heel snel de bus uit en weer in. Toch heeft de reisleiding er alles aangedaan om er nog een aangename dagtocht van te maken. Met goed weer zeker een aanrader.”
