Historic Houses in Scotland (A-B)

An A-Z Gazetteer of country houses, stately homes and palaces

Many Scottish homes are named castles. The term castle may refer to a defensive structure that was adapted for domestic purposes by later generations. The historic houses in this section are a mixture of those that started as castles and those built only for domestic purposes. They are, on the whole, occupied today or habitable. If you can't find a favorite place here, try looking under Ruined Castles, Towerhouses and Palaces. It is best to check opening times with the local TIC or the establishment itself before visiting, as visiting times can change without notice. If you'd like to stay in a Scottish castle, see our Castle Hotels in Scotland page.
