Our favourite places – part 3a
Like Twilight, The Hunger Games and Harry Potter, we have realised that we have so many favourite Scottish places that the final chapter has to be split into 2 parts. Before the final part about Scottish hills we want to cover our favourite castles.
I was lucky enough to be born and brought up in Aberdeen. The area surrounding the city is known as “Scotland’s Castle Country” according to Visit Scotland and boasts over 300 castles. That means that I have seen an awful lot of castles in my time! My tastes run to ruins. To me, they have always seemed more romantic, more evocative of history.
Here then is a personal list of favourites.
You can find out about other castles to visit on our website.
Next time (and finally) it’s our favourite Scottish hills.
