Editorial Reviews

As Seen On PBS - Legendary Sentries of a Storied Past - Scotland's castles emerge from swirling mists to reveal fortresses originally erected against the threat of Viking invaders and later, the threat of neighboring clans. Displaying architectural styles that span hundreds of years, Scottish castles are found amidst majestic hills in beautiful settings that belie their bloody past. This fascinating program explores the romantic history of the clans through tours of the structures that have witnessed centuries of war and tribal treachery. Legends of fairies, secret rooms and ghosts enliven the history of a brave people who proudly defended and preserved their Caledonia - land of the Thistle and the Lion. Bonus Program - Scotland: The Edge of the Land - A spectacular aerial journey along Scotland's western coastline.

I found this collection to be thurough and informitive in its narration. The information was not only about the state of the castles currently, but also their history, who built them, why, the changes, battles, and multiple families that resided in them through time. The video footage was quite breath taking. I found myself in awe at the meticulous and exquisite craftsmanship of these castles, not to mention the sheer scale of them. In addition taking into consideration how these castles were built given the level of technology available at the time is a testiment to human ingenuity and determination. In conclusion I found this video excellent, it was money and time well spent. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys learning while being entertained.

After returning from Scotland I had wished I had purchased some type of souvenir video over there. However, after purchasing this one, I was relieved to have a very nice souvenir of our vacation. We had visited a number of the castles in the video and the Isle of Mull (which is also featured).

Highly recommended as an after visit purchase. It would also be helpful in planning your visit, since it gives you an idea of what each castle is about.

DVD only shows current footage of the castles, no re-enactments, no historical pictures nor paintings. It lacks some narrative background and historical notes.
The kind of DVD sold as touristic memento at the castle gift-shop. Not of bad quality, though - the images are very clear and well shot.

Great DVD!! I have always wanted to go to Scotland. This gives me a birds eye view without having to leave home. This is a beautifully done DVD that hits all of the high points of Scotlan's castles. This is a must have for the Scotland fanatic.

I love castles, and any old derelect buildings. In fact, they hold more fascination for me than any complete pristine building. These old castles are from a much earlier time and offers a glimpse into what the world was like for some.
Great way to spend time.

I very much enjoyed seeing castles of Scotland as well as the coast of Scotland for the very first time! I particularly loved the second part of the dvd.

The orator on the other hand, was extremely boring!
