The castles of the British Isles and Ireland may be long defunct, but this stunning visual tour reveals how their dilapidation has lent them an air of mystery and beauty.
From the tip of southern Ireland to northern Scotland, Celtic Castles recounts the stories behind more than 100 strongholds. In them we find tales of religious dissent, of English Parliamentarians attacking Irish Catholic refuges, of warring Scottish clans, of the English and Scots fighting over Scottish independence. And in the buildings we find such curiosities as Britain’s only triangular castle and the hiding place for the Scottish crown jewels.
With 150 outstanding color photographs, Celtic Castles is a brilliant pictorial examination of a vanished world.
