Castles and Tower Houses of the Scottish Clans 1450-1650, Paperback / softback Book

Castles and Tower Houses of the Scottish Clans 1450-1650 Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Graham Turner

Part of the Fortress series

Description

Scottish castles and Tower Houses evolved as fortified dwellings that were erected in an environment of weak royal authority and feuding between rival clans.

They demonstrated a strong and highly successful design that formed the core of many larger structures.

Many of them continued to be inhabited long after the threat of unwanted visitors had diminished and remain excellently preserved for visitors and historians.

This book examines these castles and Tower Houses, focusing on their distinctive style that flourished in Scotland in the 16th and 17th centuries.
