On our Scottish adventure we decided to see a bit of Davidson family history. So we headed north er, just past Inverness, to a town called Dingwall. Here, situated at the top of the hill, is Tulloch Castle, the ancestral home of the Davidson clan.

Tulloch Castle was bought by Henery Davidson in 1762 and stayed in the family until the 20th century.

The castle is decorated inside and out with Davidson crests, tartan, and memorabilia. They even have Davidson tartan for the carpet and some curtains.

Out back, there is a little museum which we were lucky enough to get a look at as well.

In the museum there are all kinds of Davidson memorabilia and history. There even used to be a tunnel from Tulloch castle all the way to Dingwall castle, though it’s collapsed now.

Tulloch castle may be the seat of clan Davidson, however the homeland of clan Davidson is actually south of Loch Ness. This is where you will find my Kilt wearing drunken relatives, and I’m jealous.

I would have to say that visiting Tulloch castle was one of my favourite things in Scotland!
