I'm heading over to Great Britain for the Reasons to Be Creative conference in Brighton this September and am looking to make a trek up to Edinburgh to check out some of the amazing medieval castles in the area. Castles arrived in Scotland with the introduction of feudalism in the twelfth century and there have been well over two thousand castles found in all parts of the country.

This upcoming trip and my addiction to Game of Thrones inspired this latest post. We hope you enjoy some of the magnificent photos of castles gathered from Flickr. And if you have any tips for must-see spots to visit please share in the comments section.
