Castle Picture Postcards from around the year 1900

A wonderful collection of old postcards depicting how some of our Scottish castles looked around the year 1900. Scottish Castles Association member, Brian McGarrigle, is a keen castle postcard collector and has kindly given us permission to publish them on this website.
