    Yeah because on the first picture you can see that this castle is on the shore of the Lochnes lake. BTW, how about Loket castle in Czech Republic? :)

    Le château de Pierrefonds, n'est pas le château de Pierrefonds. Il est à l'orée de la forêt de Compiègne et non au bord de la mer comme sur la photo et il est bien plus grand. C'est dommage, du coup on ne sait pas trop si les autres sont bien ce qu'ils sont. C'est comme le Mont Saint Michel… c'est une abbaye pourquoi le mettre dans les châteaux. Enfin, magnifiques photos tout de même.

    Thank you for including Caerlaverock! It is the central castle, historically, for the Maxwell clan. One of my greatest memories is of exploring and climbing all in these ruins as a teenager!

    If you ever get a chance (and if the region is ever safe enough), visit the fort in the heart of Gereshk City, Helmand, Afghanistan. I’m sure it predates Christianity. It’s not very pretty by aesthetical standards. It looks like a sand castle after a hard rain. The sheer age and the fact that it’s withstood more wars than any of us will ever know is simply amazing. I got a chill every time I looked at it.

    You should check out the castle in Bentleigh East, Victoria, Australia. It’s magnificent. Lovely tip, nice curve, smell ya fingers, sprouts up in me trousies every time I finger ME DAUGHTERS!!!!!! You beauty!!!!!!!!!

    I would recommend everybody to have a look at this ancient beauty -The Niemodlin Castle (Poland). The place is absolutely amazing. It can’t be missed by anyone who wants to see the real beauty of the past.

    @Admin

    I would prescribe everyone to observe this antiquated magnificence – The Niemodlin Castle (Poland). The spot is totally astounding. It can’t be missed by any individual who needs to see the genuine magnificence of the past.
