Janet Brennan-Inglis, who bought a ruined castle in Galloway, restored it and now lives in it, gives an account of the extraordinary renaissance of Scottish castles - since 1945, 130 have been fully restored from ruins and another 150 have been saved from falling into decay. This book describes the buildings, the restorers and the restorations, often drawing on interviews and first-person accounts, but also discussing more general issues facing castles in the future.
