This was our first visit to Drummond Castle Gardens, Crieff and they didn’t disappoint. They are Scotland’s most important formal gardens and amongst the finest in Europe. They were laid out in 1630 by John Drummond 2nd Earl of Perth, but took the present format about 200 years later. 💙 #scottishcastles #scottishhistory #perthshire #drummondcastlegardens #hiddenscotland #outandaboutscotland #crieff #scotlandsgardens #visualsofscotland #visitscotland #takeninscotland #explore_scotland #ayearwithmycamera #scotshots

Give me stone on top of stone, rocks that grow to be mountains, earth that’s forever green; give me days of adventure thought gone. And tarry - won’t you? - along the trail with me. . . Day dreaming of muddy boots, wet clothes, wind wrecked hair, and those wild Scottish sights. . If you could get on a plane today, where would you be going and why? ☺️✈️💕 . . . . . . . . #scotland #kilchurncastle #castle #scotlandtravel #travelscotland #scottishcastles #daydreaming #tbt #everydaymagic #writersofinstagram #adventurebound

We are proud to present today’s featured artist. ————————————— ARTIST | @nichbrand LOCATION | Moy Castle, Isle of Mull, 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 ————————————— Beautifully situated on a rocky crag by the seashore in the south of the Isle of Mull, Moy Castle is a ruinous plain 15th-century tower of three storeys and a gabled garret, remaining entire to the wallhead. It has a flush crenellated parapet. Open rounds, which were once roofed over, crown two of the corners, while a caphouse for the stair and a gabled watch-chamber crown the others. The few windows are small.  The entrance leads to the vaulted basement, which has a well in the floor. The hall would have been on the first floor, with private chambers above. The tower was harled, and a landing place survives, just beside the castle. Part of the beach appears to have been cleared for a slipway. Castel Loch-buy’ is marked on Blaeu’s map of Mull. The MacLaines owned the property, an unruly branch of the MacLeans, after acquiring the lands from the MacDonald Lords of the Isles around 1360. The tower is believed to have been built around 1450 by Hector MacLaine, brother of Lachlan Lubanach MacLean of Duart. Iain the Toothless, the chief, and his son and heir, Ewen of the Little Head, fought in 1538 over the latter’s marriage settlement: apparently Ewen’s wife was not satisfied with their house on a fortified island in Loch Squabain, and desired something more luxurious. Ewen was slain in the subsequent battle, his head being hewn off and his horse riding away for two miles with the decapitated body. A cairn was said to mark the spot where Ewen finally fell from his horse, but this has been destroyed. His ghost, the headless horseman, is said to been seen riding in Glen Mor on a dun-coloured horse, sometimes with a green cloak, when one of the MacLaines is about to die. There are also tales of a ghostly black dog. Ewen was buried on Iona........ 》》see comment below

#ad I loved staying at Lochranza Youth Hostel on my last visit to the Isle of Arran 💙 Arran is known as ’Scotland in Miniature’, and Lochranza in itself lives up to that name; from mountains to sea, castle to distillery. I felt instantly calm and content on arrival.⁠ ⁠ Upon stepping outside the hostel, I was greeted by rabbits, sheep, oyster catchers, a lone heron, a pair of swans and an ancient castle. Magical! ✨ @hostellingscotland ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #gohostelling #arran #isleofarran #visitarran #lochranza #lochranzacastle #scottishcastles #ayrshire #scottishislands #islandhopper #scotland #visitscotland #blogscot #igersscotland #igscotland #scotlandisnow #ig_scotland #lovescotland #instascotland #scotlandlover #scotland_ig #scotlandtravel #scotland_insta #hiddenscotland

Apparently, this is the earliest etching/ depiction of Thurso Castle. Given that Caithness is the flatlands beyond the highlands, those hills are definitely an exaggerated artist’s impression 😄 Lovely all the same, though. #thurso #thursocastle #castle #castles #etching #caithness #rareartwork #thefarnorth #scotland #scottishcastles #historiccastle

We are proud to present today’s featured artist. ———————————————— ARTIST | @scotlandtraveloholic LOCATION | Dunnottar Castle, 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 ———————————————— A romantic, evocative and historically significant ruined Castle, perched on a giant conglomorate on the edge of the North-Sea. Once seen - never forgotten. . William Wallace, Mary Queen of Scots, the Marquis of Montrose and the future King Charles II have graced the Castle with their presence. Most famously though, it was at Dunnottar Castle that a small garrison held out against the might of Cromwell’s army for eight months and saved the Scottish Crown Jewels, the ‘Honours of Scotland’, from destruction. Built c.1400-1600 In use - until 1718 . The castle was restored in the 20th century and is now open to the public. ———————————————— For a chance to be featured: Please follow @scottishcastles_ and Tag #scottishcastles_ •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #DunnottarCastle #DunnottarCastleStonehaven #Fortress #Stonehaven #scottishcastles_ #scottishcastles #castlesinscotland #yourcastlesnaps #castlesworld #castles #ruins #scottishhistory #medieval #fortheloveofscotland #fairytalecastle #epic_castles #scotlandcastles #castlesoftheworld #instascotland #lovecastles #castlelovers #instacastles #europecastles #worldwide_castles #thecastlesofscotland #map_of_europe #Sunset

Taking it back to Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿. There is so much to take in while traveling and exploring. I often find it difficult to post mostly because I feel so immersed in what I’m seeing I don’t want to take the time to make a post. Now that I’m home I will be sharing out some snaps over the next week or two. Here is the bonnie Eilean Donan Castle 🏰. Hit the geo tag to see the location 👍. #eileandonancastle #eileandonan #castle #castlesofscotland #castlesofinstagram #visitscotland #photosofbritain #castles_oftheworld #scottishcastles #scotland #scotlandhighlands #scotland_insta #scotlandexplore #scotland_greatshots #historicscotland #scottishhighlands #scottishcollective #scotlandsites #scotlandscenery #loch #travelholic #traveltuesday #traveltheworld #travellingthroughtheworld #traveleurope #kings_shots #kings_alltags_ #ig_scotland

💙🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿Strome Castle🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿💙 ⠀⠀ 💙Built in the 1400’s by the Macdonalds it had an important strategic position guarding the north side of the Strome Narrows. ⠀⠀ 💙Strome Castle changed hands a number of times and not much is left after the Mackenzies blew it up in 1602 after a siege. ⠀⠀ 💙Although there is not much left to this castle it is in a pretty location.

~ Every story has an end, but in life every end is a new beginning ~ Yesterday I had my graduation and that means I'm officially a Bachelor now!👩🏻‍🎓 For the past four years, I studied Bachelor of Communications at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, in addition to my fulltime job. I can't believe these four years are over now. So much free time! 🤪 But no joke, there were many times during my study that were really hard and sometimes I even felt like I wanted to give up. But luckily there were more good than bad moments. I worked together with beautiful and inspiring people and joined interesting classes. Looking back now I wouldn't miss it for the world. ❤

This was taken from the top of Elcho Castle which is on the way to Perth. . Sometimes you just like a photo without really knowing why. This is the case here. Maybe it’s the balance between the opposite flows from the field and the forest, or it’s the balance of the colours, I’m really not sure. . It was also one of these shots that never fully came to life until the crop! #longlivethecroptop
