Ulster Plantation Castles

Ulster Plantation Castles, evidence of our Scottish and English heritage.

Ulster’s rich tapestry of cultural diversity has its origins in the early seventeenth century Plantation of Ulster with its influx of mainly Protestant English and Scottish settlers.  Thus the Plantation has proved, in the words of the historical geographer Philip Robinson, to be ‘one of the most politically significant mass migrations to have taken place in western Europe since medieval times’.

The images in this gallery were taken by commission for a publication marking the 400th anniversary of the Ulster Plantation.
