Kildrummy Castle Castles Next

Kildrummy Castle is located in Scotland in the "Whisky country" between Inverness and Aberdeen.  The castle is a ruin with no intact rooms or towers.  The most interesting aspect of this castle waslearning about how it was constructed.  The curtain and tower walls are all exposed so that you can see how thick they were and what kind of materials they used to construct them. Some of the other architercural features like fireplaces and stairways were also exposed so that you could see how they were constructed.
