Publisher's description: The amazing stories behind the rescue and restoration of 100 Scottish castles Is there any other architectural form that is more universally loved than the castle? This book is a beautifully illustrated celebration and account of the renaissance of Scottish castles that has taken place since 1950. More than 100 ruined and derelict buildings from tiny towers to rambling baronial mansions have been restored as homes, hotels, and vacation homes, mainly by new owners without any connections to the land or the family history of the buildings, which they bought as ruins. Their struggles and triumphs, including interviews and first-person accounts, form the core of the book, set in the context of the enormous social, political, and economic changes of the late 20th century.
