It has been the home of the Dalyell family ever since. The house is a good example of the early 17th-century transition in Scottish architecture from fortified stronghold to more spacious mansion. Important moulded plaster ceilings in four of the main rooms were added in 1630. The house's fascinating collection of portraits, furniture and porcelain reveals the life and interests of one family through the centuries, including one of its celebrated characters, General Tam Dalyell, about whom there is a wealth of legends.

Alloa Tower - Clackmannanshire

Alloa Tower, the largest surviving keep in Scotland, dates from the 14th century. It was home to successive generations of the Earls of Mar, who played host to and were guardians of many Scots monarchs. Here, Mary, Queen of Scots was reconciled with Darnley and granted the 5th Lord Erskine the much-coveted earldom in 1565. One tradition holds that Mary's infant son, later James VI and I, died here and was replaced by the baby son of the Earl of Mar. The Tower has seen six major alterations, the most dramatic being the sweeping Italianate staircase and dome added in the early 1700s by the 6th Earl of Mar. But it still retains original medieval features such as the dungeon, first-floor well and magnificent roof timbers.

Dalmeny House

When Dalmeny House was completed in 1817, it marked a great departure in Scottish architecture;its Tudor Gothic style, with its highly-decorated chimneys and crenellations, looked back toward fanciful 16th-century English mansions, such as Hampton Court. The house was designed by a University friend of the 4th Earl of Rosebery, William Wilkins, who would go on to design the National Gallery in London and much of King's College, Cambridge - parts of which closely resemble Dalmeny. With its Gothic Great Hall and corridor, its large, formal regency apartments and its sweeping views across the Firth of Forth, it is a house which combines comfort and romanticism, and which produced many imitations throughout Scotland.

Stirling Castle

Stirling Castle, located in Stirling, is one of the largest and most important castles, both historically and architecturally, in Scotland. The castle sits atop Castle Hill, an intrusive crag, which forms part of the Stirling Sill geological formation. It is surrounded on three sides by steep cliffs, giving it a strong defensive position. Its strategic location, guarding what was, until the 1890s, the farthest downstream crossing of the River Forth, has made it an important fortification from the earliest times. Most of the principal buildings of the castle date from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. A few structures of the fourteenth century remain, while the outer defences fronting the town date from the early eighteenth century. Several Scottish Kings and Queens have been crowned at Stirling, including Mary, Queen of Scots, in 1542. There have been at least eight sieges of Stirling Castle, including several during the Wars of Scottish Independence, with the last being in 1746, when Bonnie Prince Charlie unsuccessfully tried to take the castle. Stirling Castle is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, and is now a tourist attraction managed by Historic Scotland.
