Castles ~ Wales and Scotland

Of all the great places we visited,  my favorites were the ‘castles’ and my favorite castle is Raglan, Monmouthshire Wales

Slains Castle, Cruden Bay, Peterhead,  Scotland ~ featured in a series of books by Susanna Kearsley (which I truly enjoyed) so  when I found the castle near Dornoch – it was a must see.  Not to mention the golf course nearby to be exquisite _DIH1162

Doune Castle,  Stirling,  Scotland ~ featured as Castle Leoch and Winterfell in Outlander and GOT.    I was besides myself being there.

Margam Castle , Margam Wales ~ through the morning haze was majestic.  We went to the town of Margam as many of the Hughes were born here ( the town not the castle) so we toured the area and found this unreal place.
