Dear All:

Please post information for each of the Clan Castles and Towers
here. The property can be curently in "ruins" but should have the
official UK designated and registered number.If you are not
aware of the number then post and ask for someone
to assist in determining that number.

There needs to be a clear relationship between the Clan and
the current or previous ownership of the property.

Each Castle/Tower would then have it's own sub thread and can
be linked to newsletters and email messages.

The postings can even include current status reports, fund raising efforts,
societies that have restoration programs etc.

Descriptions of the Castle and Tower can include:
A: History as it relates to the Clan or Family
B: Major events that took place at the Castle
C: Layout of the Castle or Tower
D: Current Status. Those Castles that are currently
offering tours or visits would be allowed one
posting on hours, rates, web sites URL's and email
address, local phone number, and mail address.
Names of current proprietor should be included.
That posting should be kept current.
E: Newsletters that are approved by the Property owner
can also be published here. Please contact the
Board Admin before posting these.

Please reply to this post and change the subject heading to
the name of the property that is posting the news. Then
keep that thread current with the news etc of the current
activity of the Castle or Tower etc.

The benefit of having your own thread here is that you can
post the URL in newsletter or emails etc to newsgroups or
mailing lists etc. That way, any interested parties of the
Castle or Tower property from the Clan, Related Family ,
or even a unique family group can always come to this same
thread for the latest news and status reports.

The posting here will also be visible for an extended period vs.
the short retention time of the mailing lists.

Please feel free to post this notice to other surname message
boards and mailing lists that would be interested in this Castle
message board topic.

Best Regards
John A Hansen

I was wondering if anyone knew anything about Rosshire Castle in Scottland. That is where my Clan was supposed to be from.
