Elcho Castle

    Elcho Castle is located near Perth in Scotland. This castle dates back to about 1570. It was built during a time when castles were designed to be comfortable yet they still needed to be defended. So, despite the gunloops and small barred windows, the entrance has an amazing curved stone staircase that would have impressed any visitor. It is very well preserved and gives you an idea as to how its residents lived. Click on the picture.
