I have a slight obsession with castles therefore this book is perfect for me to plan my next break in Scotland!

An excellent, concise book providing basic information on castles in Scotland. It doesn't have them all, but the vast majority making it easy to plan a castle trip across the country. 

Information provided includes basic background, contact information for visitors, and what type of castle it is.

Handy guide to use in conjunction with a map to plan a fun road trip!

This is amazing book with information about all 140 of Scotland's castle. Each entry is accompanied by a gorgeous colour picture of the castle and a wealth of information as to its historical providence, architectural history and uses up until the modern day if applicable. A must for castle fans or those planning on visiting these magnificent wonders of Scotland.

Thank you to netgalley and the publishers for a copy of this to review.

This isn't the most detailed guide to Scottish Castles you could find, but for such a compact book it holds a lot of information!
Each castle has a photo and a small summary of its history, along with website and contact details. I would say this is a perfect tour guide for those wanting to plan a tour of Scottish castles, or for those just getting into the history and heritage of Scotland like myself.
