On a lovely clear day we stopped off at Balvaird Castle in Fife. What a treat! We had it all to ourselves. Of course we couldn't go inside the tower as it was closed, but having it to ourselves was worth it! It looked like the tower might be open to the public one weekend a month in the summer, but we weren't sure. There's a long tree lined drive to walk up to it giving spectacular views of it as you approach and it sits on top of a hill and there are gorgeous views all around from there. This is not a royal castle, but was a private residence, built in the 1500's. Read all about the castle's history and construction here.
