Clan and Castle


Scotland’s clan history is central to its identity. The shared kinship groups from Gaelic tradition are best known for the romantic picture painted by Sir Walter Scott. But what was the reality for the clans of old?

Some of the most powerful dynasties in Scotland’s history came from humble clan beginnings. The more powerful families built the castles that dominate Scotland’s landscape.

This book focuses on the stories of seven prominent clans, featuring extensive illustrations and vivid stories.
