The Pictorial Directory of Scotland's Castles is a unique publication.
Over a three-year period, I have compiled a list of over 1000 Scottish castles. I decided some time ago that I would attempt something which, to the best of my knowledge, had never been done before. I was going to attempt to visit every Scottish castle which still had visible remains above ground, find as many as I could, photograph each one and list it with a brief history of each castle. I have included hand-painted coats of arms of the clan chiefs and nobility who owned them and the clan crests. On each castle page, I have also given detailed directions on how to find each castle, complete with a What3words location, some tips on accessibility, facilities, nearby points of interest, examples of clan tartans, plant badges, and much more.
