James Knox


The ten extraordinary houses and castles featured in this book have all survived the vicissitudes of Scotland’s history with almost all of their original families still in residence. Each house also represents a landmark in Scotland’s architectural history, ranging from the early seventeenth to the early twentieth century.

The architectural revelation is matched by sensational settings, which merge designed gardens and landscape with the unparalleled wildness and vistas of Scotland. All of these cherished houses are chockablock with memories of the past, from swagger portraits to sporrans, from vintage photographs to ancient weaponry, from curling stones to fading chintz.

James Fennell’s masterly photographs capture the distinctive atmosphere of each residence. As he guides the reader on an intimate tour of the houses, Knox recounts their histories and profiles the colourful lairds, clan chiefs and nobles who have called them home.
