At 13, Andrew Carnegie left his native Scotland in search of wealth in America. To say he succeeded would be a gross understatement. To celebrate his good fortune, he bought the ancient Scottish castle Skibo in 1898 and rebuilt it to create one of the world's great residences. AMERICA'S CASTLES crosses the Atlantic to visit this magnificent edifice, now the home of the Carnegie Club. Rare photographs show the exhaustive renovation and reconstruction that turned the massive castle into a luxurious home where Carnegie entertained guests like Rudyard Kipling, Helen Keller, the Rockefellers and Edward VII. Tour the estate's 7,000 acres, an enchantingly beautiful expanse highlighted by a clarins spa and expansive swimming pool. See the exquisite period furnishings which Carnegie filled his castle with. And learn just what it takes to keep a castle so old that its 10th century residents claimed it was a gift from Gaelic fairies in good shape.
