A compendium of 28 beautiful, historical Scottish Castles for local and visitor alike

Scotland: A land with rich history, wild landscapes and some of the most beautiful castles on Earth. There have been over 2000 castles in scottish history; some have been preserved in superb condition, some lie in picturesque ruin and others have been resigned to historical records.

Discover the story of the well-trodden fortress of Edinburgh Castle, uncover the beautiful remoteness of Eileen Donan and learn all about Castle Urquhart, on the banks of Loch Ness. These are the sites of feuds, the homes of royalty and the locations of great battles.

This Pitkin guide takes the reader on a tour of 28 of Scotland’s most magnificent castles. Revised for 2019, it makes a perfect addition to the literature for any visitor to the country.


David Cook has been a Pitkin author for many years, who specialises in history and heritage. His titles include Scottish Castles and Castles of Wales, wide-ranging colour guidebooks to the impressive fortresses and their histories.
