    Scotland castles

    I've heard that Scotland has many old and ancient castles scattered throughout the country. It sounds very interesting to me since I love historical buildings, history in general. What are some of the most famous castles of Scotland. Are many of them falling to ruins? Does the government of the country allow tours and visits to the them?

    Famous Scotland Castles

    The most popular two are Stirling and Edinburgh, both of which are maintained by Historic Scotland and open as tourist attractions year-round. You can wander around yourself, go on a guided tour, hire an audio guide or buy a guidebook, so there are plenty of options if you're interested in finding out more about the history. Another one, which is near Stirling, is Doune Castle - it's less tourist-y, and is much better to explore on your own. It's also where parts of 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' were filmed. There are loads of other castles as well, and I assume they're also open to the public, but I've only ever been to Stirling, Doune and Edinburgh. There are a lot of ruins around the country as well, but pretty much all the castles and monuments of historical importance are well-maintained tourist attractions.
