All in all, Scotland has over 3000 castles.
The closest castle to where we were staying in Glenrothes was Balgonie Castle. On the day we tried to visit Balgonie Castle, there was a sign on the door that it was closed for a wedding, so we had to come back later. Here are the pictures we took from the outside.
Here's me walking down the road from the castle.

The castle's stone wall which was falling down. I was tempted to pick up a stone to bring home but didn't if I could get through customs with it, so I didn't.
