first Castle in Scotland

I just came across this trivia.
"The oldest castle in Scotland is Cubbie Row's Castle on the Island of Wyre,
Orkney.  It was built in 1145 by Norseman Kolbein Hruga."

   This is just before the 2nd Crusade.  I had thought that there would have
been some castles build after the first Crusade.
