Castle in Scotland: the Castle Built By William Wallace Could Be Yours

As soon as you think of castle you will have Scotland in mind. Due to a history full of wars fought with arrows, swords and javelins, Scotland has hundreds and thousands of castles.

The amazing Midmar Castle in Scotland is said to have been built by William Wallace. This is a big castle with towers and turrets that will send you back to the old times as soon as you see them. The castle is built on a Z-type floor plan. The castle was built with the old defensive techniques in mind so you will see three towers on it: two are round whereas one is square in shape. The renovation done on the castle has not changed the way it looks and so you will find it just the way it was centuries ago with a few exceptions of the corbellings.

The only difference you will notice is when you enter the castle and find the modern facilities inside. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that some of the additional work done on the castle has lessened the effects of its defensiveness and it now looks more like a suitable castle for romantic relationships. Despite a lot of renovation that was done at the end of the 20th century all that could be retained of the old building has been retained. Much of the work done on the interior walls is protected and retains its shape that it had centuries ago from today.
