I’ll Take This… Woodside Castle, Scotland

The thing about a massive old castle is that it’s hellish in the winter. Those thick stone walls just hold in the cold and damp. Trust me. I know this from the experience of working in a 12th century castle on the south coast of Wales.

Woodside Castle 1It’s also got a dungeon, but what self-respecting castle doesn’t?Woodside Castle 2It was built in the 1500’s, but “modernized” in the 1890’s, so it’s pretty up-to-date. Best of all, it’s pretty close to Glasgow, not out in the wilds of Stornoway in the Outer Hebrides.  Woodside Castle 3You can check further details here.

  2. We've got a lime tree in the backyard. I'll bring limes (and anything else your heart desires). Please just put me up in a room near the tartan carpet.

    Don't think I'd like to own, pay taxes and maintain it, but I wouldn't mind being a house guest there! The tartan carpet is super.
