Culzean Castle was constructed as an L-plan castle by order of the 10th Earl of Cassilis. He instructed the architect Robert Adam to rebuild a previous, but more basic, structure into a fine country house to be the seat of his earldom. The castle was built in stages between 1777 and 1792. It incorporates a large drum tower with a circular saloon inside (which overlooks the sea), a grand oval staircase and a suite of well-appointed apartments.

In 1945, the Kennedy family gave the castle and its grounds to the National Trust for Scotland (thus avoiding inheritance tax). In doing so, they stipulated that the apartment at the top of the castle be given to General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower in recognition of his role as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe during the Second World War. The General first visited Culzean Castle in 1946 and stayed there four times, including once while President of the United States. An Eisenhower exhibition occupies one of the rooms, with mementoes of his lifetime.

The Ayrshire (Earl of Carrick's Own) Yeomanry, a British Yeomanry cavalry regiment, was formed by The Earl of Cassillis at Culzean Castle in about 1794. On 24 June 1961, the regiment returned to the castle to be presented with its first guidon byGeneral Sir Horatius Murray, KBE, CB, DSO.

Ghosts:
The Castle is reputed to be home to at least seven ghosts including a piper and a servant girl.

Culzean Castle is used as the castle of Lord Summersisle (played by Christopher Lee) in the 1973 cult film The Wicker Man. The scenes here were filmed in February 1972.

A ocupação humana no local remonta ao século IX. No entanto, poucas das estrutruras do castelo actual são datadas antes do cerco Lang do século XVI, com a notável excepção da Capela de Santa Margarida, o mais velho edifício sobrevivente de Edimburgo, a qual remonta ao início do século XII.

Entre as suas atracções estão as jóias da Coroa Escocesa: a Coroa, a Espada e o Ceptro encontram-se entre as mais antigas da Europa. Estas insígnias reais foram aqui guardadas após a união dos Parlamentos da Escócia e da Inglaterra, em 1707, encontrando-se actualmente em exibição na Sala da Coroa. Ali também se encontra a chamada Pedra do Destino, o assento de coroação dos reis da Escócia.

ATRAÇÃO TURÍSTICA
O castelo agora é conservado e administrado, na sua maior parte, pela Historic Scotland, uma agência executiva do Governo Escocês.70 Esta assume a dupla, e por vezes contraditória, tarefa de explorar o castelo como uma atracção turística comercialmente viável, enquanto tem, simultaneamente, a responsabilidade pela conservação do lugar. O Castelo de Edimburgo é o sitio mais visitado da Historic Scotland, sendo a mais popular atraçãoo paga, com mais de 1,2 milhões de visitantes em 2007.

Outros pontos de interesse no castelo são:

A pequena Capela de Santa Margarida, os aposentos reais e o imponente Grande Hall, construído por Jaime IV da Escócia em 1511;

As prisões militares, onde no final do século XVIII estiveram detidos marinheiros de muitos países, inclusive dos recém-independentes Estados Unidos da América.. Leia mais na Wikipedia

History: It is possible that an early Christian monastic cell was founded on the island in the 6th or 7th century, dedicated to Donnán of Eigg, an Irish saint who was martyred on Eigg in April 617.

Origins of the castle
In the earlier thirteenth century, during the reign of Alexander II (ruled 1214–1249), a large curtain-wall castle (wall of enceinte) was constructed that enclosed much of the island. At this time the area was at the boundary of the Norse-Celtic Lordship of the Isles and the Earldom of Ross: Eilean Donan provided a strong defensive position against Norse expeditions

Clan feuding
James I, determined to pacify the Highlands, journeyed to Inverness in 1427 and invited the principal chiefs to meet him there. Allegedly among them was the young Alexander Mackenzie, 6th Earl of Kintail. James then arrested him, along with the other chiefs, on their arrival. Mackenzie clan histories relate that, although several chiefs were executed or imprisoned, Alexander, due to his youth, was instead sent to Perth to attend school.

Restoration and reuse
Between 1919 and 1932 the castle was rebuilt by Lt. Col. John MacRae-Gilstrap. The restoration included the construction of an arched bridge to give easier access to the island. Macrae-Gilstrap also established of a war memorial dedicated to the men of the Macrae clan who died in the First World War.

Dunnottar Castle - Scotland


The surviving buildings are largely of the 15th and 16th centuries, but the site is believed to have been fortified in the Early Middle Ages. Dunnottar has played a prominent role in the history of Scotland through to the 18th-century Jacobite risings because of its strategic location and the strength of its situation.

Exploring Dunnottar Castle


Dunnottar is best known as the place where the Honours of Scotland, the Scottish crown jewels, were hidden from Oliver Cromwell's invading army in the 17th century. The property of the Keiths from the 14th century, and the seat of the Earl Marischal, Dunnottar declined after the last Earl forfeited his titles by taking part in the Jacobite rebellion of 1715. The castle was restored in the 20th century and is now open to the public.

Let's travel to: Dunnottar Castle


The ruins of the castle are spread over 1.4 hectares (3.5 acres), surrounded by steep cliffs that drop to the North Sea, 50 metres (160 ft) below. A narrow strip of land joins the headland to the mainland, along which a steep path leads up to the gatehouse. The various buildings within the castle include the 14th-century tower house as well as the 16th-century palace. Dunnottar Castle is a scheduled monument, and twelve structures on the site are listed buildings.

Cliff Jumping Scotland - Dunnottar Castle


Early Middle Ages
A chapel at Dunnottar is said to have been founded by St Ninian in the 5th century, although it is not clear when the site was first fortified. Possibly the earliest written reference to the site is found in the Annals of Ulster which record two sieges of "Dún Foither" in 681 and 694. The earlier event has been interpreted as an attack by Brude, the Pictish king of Fortriu, to extend his power over the north-east coast of Scotland. Wikipedia
