Hi, thanks for the PM re banners, happy to help.
Well done on this list on Scotland so far - A lot of this is really accurate, I think, but bits are from later period. Its confusing as the sources of the time are poor in any case.
My bad regarding the work you'd done on the Hebrides of Scotland, as they're in the list for Norway. They seem to be good. Comments on your list in bold below.
Kingdom of Scotland (23):
Dunkeld - Edinburgh (City), Stirling (City), Scone (City), Dumbarton Castle, Montrose Castle. A pretty succinct list of the ruling house holdings base. Both Edinburgh and Stirling should be the biggest and baddest forts you can get!
Coluim - Macduffs Castle, NOT
Tantallon Castle (Not built until 1400s)
de Lennox - Balloch Castle, Rosneath (Manor), Row (Manor)
de Moneteadhaich - Rusky Castle
Comyn - Rattray Castle, Kingussie (Town), Banff Castle
Stewart - Rothesay Castle, Dundonald Castle, Renfrew Castle, Mar Castle, Renfrew (Town), Kilmacolm (Manor) (Stewart were a minor clan at this time, they really became powerful after they married into the Bruce line from the 1320s, and places like Mar were awarded to them later on, so this might need to be amended)
de Carrick - Turnberry Castle (Castle)
Ó Beólláin - Inverness (Town)
de Menteith - Menteith Castle
- Balloch (Manor), Dunbar (CASTLE - fantastic castle built on five rock stacks linked by bridges, just like the Greyjoys on Game of Thrones - sadly just a few lumps in the sea now)
, Berwick upon Tweed (Town), Swinton
Fitz Roland - Kirkcudbright (City)
Strathearn - St Johns Town of
Perth (City) (Thats what they called it then)
Douglas - Linlithgow
(Town), Hermiston (Manor)
de Valognes - Benington Castle, Kilbridge Castle, Inchgall Castle
de Brus - LOCHMABEN
Wallace - Kyle (Town)
Gordon - Huntly Castle
de Giffard - Yester Castle (Yester was I think built later on - Hailes Castle was built at the time and was nearby so might be a good substitute)
Mac Donald - Aros Castle (Clan McDonald did not exist at this time, they were sons of Donald, Lord of the Isles which wasn't big until later in the 13th century)
MacDougall - Duart Castle
Campbell - Campbell Castle
Macsween - Sween Castle
Ruaidhrí - Castle Tioram
Some additions ( but these are not exclusive)
Main castles of the Border Marches
- Hermitage Castle (but may have been build later)
- Hume Castle
- Threave Castle
St Andrews (City - main powerbase of medieval Scots Church and one of the richest in Scotland at the time)
Dunottar Castle (near Aberdeen, incredible clifftop setting)
Finlaggan on Islay, (centre of power for the soon to be 'Lord of The Isles' in the Southern Hebrides)
a few clans which were in existence then.
- MacEth - Earls/Mormaers of Ross
