Castles of Scotland: A Voyage Through the Centuries by Chris Tabraham, C. j. Tabraham
For centuries, Scotland’s castles protected her people from invasion—but eventually most lay in ruins. In the 1820’s, artist William Daniell drew the remains of these once-grand structures. For the first time, these illustrations appear in a fascinating collection alongside more recent photos of ruins and restorations, and accompanied by fascinating tales of these fortresses. The stories paint a uniquely human portrait of the castle, which was central to the lives of all Scots whatever their social station, in peacetime and war.
