Summary:
Many of America's richest men have roots in Scotland, and over the years, some have returned to their ancestral lands to live in the dramatic castles which dot the craggy landscape of this ancient country. AMERICANS IN SCOTLAND journeys across the Atlantic to visit some of the finest of these castles, where captains of industry reclaimed their roots in high style. See the stunning collections of arms and armor, tapestries and portraits amassed by Alexander Leith, a steel baron who returned from America to live in splendor in Fyvie Castle, his boyhood home. Tour the ancient chambers and vaulted halls of 16th century Crathes Castle, owned by one family for over 350 years. The 11th Baronet made a fortune in ranching in America before coming back with his New York bride to claim his title and home. And see the chambers of Culzean Castle, where Dwight D. Eisenhower spent many of his happiest moments. The top floor of the 1772 castle was given to the American general in 1945 as a thank-you present from the Scottish people, and became a favorite retreat for Ike. Join AMERICA'S CASTLES for a privileged tour of some of the most dramatic homes of all the stunning Scottish castles.
