Default Lets try this one

Now here is a building to identify. Hint it was housed by a well known person. So give us the location of the building and why is it so important.

It's in Scotland and a President once had special privileges there. I love these types of buildings!

It is a Castle, of which I have forgotten the name. It is located near Glasgow, Scotland.

General Dwight D. Eisenhower used it during WWII. Part of the building is a Mesumn and General Eisenhower's stuff is on display.

Cutiecat how did you know this?
