Castles in Scotland


CULZEAN CASTLE






EILEAN DONAN CASTLE


Photographs are not allowed inside this castle


CAWDOR CASTLE
It was my favourite. The gardens are a must.


URQUHART CASTLE (Lochness)






BALMORAL CASTLE

You can only visit the Ballroom (an exhibition of photographs),  the beautiful gardens, conservatories, the café and the gift shop.




















In the café I could not believe the tablecloths were made of plastic... and the sugarcubes?

GLAMIS CASTLE




It was the former residence of the Queen Mother. Photographs are not allowed .

There is a small chapel which is still used for family functions.
Castle tour guides say that one seat in the chapel is always reserved for the "White Lady" (supposedly a ghost which inhabits the castle).

I think the painting of Christ wearing a hat  is very interesting and rare. (internet picture)


What I really disliked was to see so many flower arrangements with artificial flowers.
