The Scottish Castles Association gathered at the Cally Palace Hotel, Gatehouse of Fleet, in April 2017 for two days of castle seeing in Kirkcudbright and Wigtown.
It was good to meet old friends and as usual we were blessed with fine weather.
We visited no fewer than 16 castles – and one abbey! Those members who didn’t manage to make the tour and want to know more about the properties we visited will find full details in a forthcoming Journal.
