Scottish Castles Map ITMB 

What does the word ‘Scotland’ mean to first-time visitors to the country? The history of the nation is fascinating and, being of Scottish ancestry myself, the castles and battlefields that have shaped Scottish history for a thousand years is a big attraction. On this map, we have emphasized the top ‘must see’ castles, including my clan home, Eileen Donan (Mackenzie clan). These have been highlighted in blue and we would be happy to add more wonderful castles open to the public in future editions.

The top whisky distilleries of the nation are actually a huge tourist attraction, with tours and sampling sessions and deserve emphasis for this reason alone! They are highlighted in magenta and, again, we would be happpy to add more in the next edition – hic! For good measure, we have added a list of the top ‘other’ attractions of Scotland, such as Loch Ness and Robert Burns’ birthplace. The joy of this map is that it is an excellent road/rail map of Scotland, based thematically, double-sided, with two separate covers (one focused on castles, the other for distilleries, so can be marketed in two different ways. This is a bit of a new direction for ITMB, in that this type of map is oriented thematically, but it is a lovely-looking map and we hope it will fill a market niche.
