Portencross Castle photographs
This is a picture of Portencross Castle in Scotland

Portencross Castle was built in the 14th century. The walls are massive and the tower is rather stout, which is probably why it still stands. A taller tower was added to the original tower house, with a vaulted first storey. A kitchen was added in the new tower, as well as a second kitchen on the first floor. It is good shape now, although a gale stripped off the roof in 1739.

One of the interesting facts in its history is that the bodies of deceased Scottish kings lay here prior to their burial on the island of Iona

This photograph is from a collection which shows the variety of scottish castles and country houses or the national monuments and churches that help make the country of scotland.
