Continuing on the 'Castle Bagging' theme, we went to Elcho Castle just outside of Perth today, another Historic Scotland property. Typical April weather today sunshine and showers, pleasantly warm though. It is very impressive both inside and out and you get great views over the River Tay. It is a great place to take children as they have 'costumes' for them to dress up in as well as quizzes to do. Elcho Castle is a 16th century tower house and is one of the best preserved in Scotland.
