Scotland Bound, Castle Shopping

As if I haven't traveled enough, we are now planning a trip to Scotland. Constant travel is a reality of international families. And since my mother may well be coming with us, we are thinking of finding a castle in which to stay for a few nights. Of course, if we do this, we have to stay in the Highlands. (Drummond castle, by the way, does not seem to be available for overnights).

Among the contenders:

Bunchrew House Hotel:

Set within 20 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens and woodland on the shores of the Beauly Firth near Inverness, Bunchrew House is a 17th century Scottish mansion steeped in tradition and history (part of the House dates back to 1505), offering quality accommodation, award-winning cuisine and a highland welcome second to none.

Glengorm Castle

Situated on the Northern tip of the Isle of Mull near Tobermory, Glengorm Castle overlooks the Atlantic and has views over 60 miles to the Outer Hebrides and Islands of Uist, Rhum and Canna. The Castle was built in 1860 and sits at the headland of Glengorm's vast area of coastline, forestry, lochs and hills. Glengorm truly stands apart from the surrounding Western Isles, already known for its dramatic scenery, due to its tranquillity and sheer natural beauty.

Minard Castle

Stay in style at Minard Castle beside Loch Fyne. Our Scottish castle is a historic house dating from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries

Can one be homesick for a place that was never one's home?
Absolutely. Isn't that what it means to be a romantic?
