I was amazed at the number of castles in Scotand.

It's a common misconception that Scotland in the middle ages was the incredibly poor and deprived land you see in films like Braveheart, Scotland was actually a relatively rich country for the time which explains the large amount of castles. That probably isn't relevant to what we're discussing but I thought I'd tell you all that anyway!

My favourite castles are in Romania, there seems to be thousands of bizarre castles all over the country, I can't remember the names of a lot of them but I particularly like Bran Castle (I guess that's the most famous one, I'm not sure) near Brasov.

Quoting samsara2

Bunratty Castle is the clear choice people

When I went there, I had to just look from the outside. It was around dinner time and they closed the castle and to go in you had to buy an expensive dinner .

Yes, Bran Castle is very beautiful! I saw few pictures and its design is more to elipse if viewing from the sky...

I agree! Same fact applies to Thailand! See how many Wat are to be found in Thailand!!! But what happen to Thailand nowadays? (sigh) and besides, we do welcome any views about castles in the world as castles are one of the most precious gift left by our ancestors!

Well done!
