Castle of the Day with a twist

 Shandong Province, China

Here is a copy of what looks like an old traditional Scottish Castle which has been carefully built ‘brick by brick’ in the craggy hills in the heart a Vineyard in China’s ‘Shandong Province’. This impressive castle commands stunning views in the Chinese countryside and has a Scottish saltire at the turreted top swaying in the winds for all to see.

Inside the Castle is a Great Hall with marble fireplaces and a table large enough to seat 60 guests. To add to the atmosphere, the catering staff are dressed in traditional Scottish tartans and guests who are lucky enough to stay overnight, sleep in large four-poster beds. The views from the small windows, alas, have no beautiful highland lochs or hills but instead there are bright new vineyards to rival those presently in Europe. Chris Ruffle, a Yorkshire-man, has assumed the mantle of an exiled Scot at this Castle and is very proud of it and is sure of its future success and fame.
