This is a picture of Strathaven Castle in Scotland

Strathaven castle is also known as Avondale castle. Dating back to the early parts of the 14th century, Strathhaven had several owners. In the early 1400's, it was owned by the powerful Douglas family but after the suppression of the House of Douglas in 1455, it passed in 1458 to Sir Andrew Stewart, who later become the first Lord Avondale. The 3rd Lord lost it to Sir James Hamilton of Finnart in 1534. In 1611 Strathhaven was sold to James, 2nd Marquis of Hamilton and it remained in that family for three hundred years. This photograph of Strathaven Castle clearly shows that ,now basically a ruin, it can be openly viewed by the public as it is near the main road.

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. From pictures of scottish castles to images of industrial landscapes. Whatever you are looking for in terms of pictures images or photographs of scotland then hopefully you will find it here
