Ever read The Second Coming, by Walker Percy? That book may have been meant to occur in the neighborhood you're looking at.
Now that the USSR is gone, I'm amused by the idea of a dictatorship of the proletariat operating out of a Scottish castle. They can establish a Politburo, amass weapons (maces, dirks, etc.) and eventually make Scotland into the workers' paradise everyone's always dreamed of.The whole point of a castle is to keep out the riff raff.

I know that area very well. (Tynecastle) It's at the foot of Grandfather Mountain. There are several houses and some commercial buildings that are all built in the Scottish baronial style.

Other lairds had conformed to the times as well as the laird of the glen; gay parties were constantly going forward among them. My sister-in-law's heavy coach, drawn by four large horses, driven by a little man and a smart boy, in jackets and jockey-caps, as postilions, and followed by two outriders, often conveyed us to places which, as a child, I'd hardly heard of, where the same extent of hospitality seemed to prevail as in our own modernised castle.
