Tour of Scotland Castles | Tourism in Scotland

Slains Castle

If you're planning to tour of scotland castles, Slains Castle is one of the best place to visit in scotland. it is a huge spectacular ruin overlooking the southern cliffs a kilometer from the eastern part of Cruden Bay, Scotland. Slains Castle which was used by Bram Stoker as an inspiration for the story of Dracula is quite an unsettling place. The front of the large castle is positioned along the edge of the cliffs with what was once its garden, currently safeguarded from unwanted guests by a deep cloven that extends into the cliffs. Its internal structure is mainly composed of intersecting corridors built within the castle with bricks, the outside of the castle consists of a courtyard even though the current state of the castle makes it difficult to distinguish the inside from the outside. Slains Castle is clouded by a general air of creepiness, this harrowing atmosphere is accelerated by the dark vaulted room which served as a kitchen store accessed down a muddy slide. The Castle is unmistakably different from other Castle ruins in Scotland. Nature has given it a depiction that would hard press someone to call it attractive but the castle is certainly interesting. The castle can induce a petrifying imagination created by the melodies of crashing waves on rocks beneath and the cries of gulls. The route to the Castle is completely unaided by any signs and this makes the castle easily dangerous, if you go, make sure to watch your step.
