Think I’ll hole up here awhile in my ancestor’s castle. #mygreygardens #needthekeysfirst @castlesofscotland with @get_repost ・・・ Castle Campbell dates from the early 15th century and was built by John Stewart, Lord of Lorn. In 1465, the castle passed by marriage to Colin Campbell, Earl of Argyll when he married Isobel, eldest daughter of John Stewart. The Campbells had come to prominence following the Wars of Scottish independence. ▫️ Colin Campbell died in 1493 and was succeeded by his son, Archibald. He had been appointed as Chancellor of Scotland in 1483 and, following his father's death, he reflected his status with a wave of upgrades at Castle Campbell. Archibald died alongside James IV at the Battle of Flodden. ▫️ The Campbell's status saw a number of historical figures visit the castle. In 1556, John Knox preached to a large audience there and in 1563 Mary, Queen of Scots visited to attend the wedding of James Stewart, to Margaret, sister to Archibald, 5th Earl of Argyll. Two years later Mary was back but this time at the head of an army following Campbell's decision to support the rebels opposing her. ▫️ The execution of Charles I in 1649 created a schism between the English Parliament and Scotland. Archibald Campbell initially supported King Charles II but when English forces invaded and secured a decisive victory at the Battle of Dunbar (1650), he switched sides to support Oliver Cromwell. By December 1653 Castle Campbell was being used to garrison English troops but in Summer 1654 it was attacked by Royalists and gutted by fire. ▫️ Following the Restoration of Charles II, the treasonous Archibald Campbell was promptly executed. His son opted to live in Stirling instead and Castle Campbell was never repaired. It passed into State care in 1948. ▫️ Image by @drone_vision_303 ——————————————— #scottish #lovescotland #scotland #historicscotland #visitscotland #love_scotland #travelinggram #dronestagram #thisisscotland #scotspirit #instascotland #worldtraveler #ig_worldclub #igersscotland #goexplore #castle #discoverglobe #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #history #castlesofscotland #scotlandsbeauty #passionpassport #discoverscotland #greatno
Estou apaixonada 😍😍 \______&______/ #Repost @castlesofscotland • • • • • The MacDonalds, or Clan Donald, were Lords of the Isles, and their kingdom covered a vast area of western Scotland. The Clan played a pivotal role in the history of the Highlands, from clan warfare to the Jacobite Rising, and the eventual breakdown of the traditional clan system. ▫️ Clan Donald came to Skye in the 15th century and held castles at Duntulm, Knock, Dunscaith, and Armadale. From around 1650 the clan chiefs began to stay at Armadale, and the mansion house later became a dower house for the widows of clan chiefs. ▫️ Perhaps the most famous visitor to the old mansion house at Armadale was Flora MacDonald, known for her role in helping Bonnie Prince Charlie escape capture. She was married at Armadale Castle in 1750. Later visitors included Samuel Johnson and his biographer, James Boswell, who visited in 1773 as part of their famous journey through the Western Isles. ▫️ A new mansion house was built in 1790 and extended in 1815 to form the present Armadale Castle. Unfortunately, the castle was gutted by fire in 1855. Most of the mansion was destroyed. ▫️ The central section was rebuilt, leaving the remainder a picturesque ruin. The MacDonald family moved to a smaller house on the estate in 1925, and today only the ruins of Armadale Castle remain. ▫️ Image by @ksulli90 ——————————————————— #scottish #lovescotland #scotland #historicscotland #flower_igers #lordoftherings #visitscotland #love_scotland #travelinggram #thisisscotland #travelphotography #abandonedplaces #brilliantbritain #ig_worldclub #igersscotland #goexplore #castle #discoverglobe #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #history #castlesofscotland #scotlandsbeauty #passionpassport #discoverscotland #greatnorthcollective #lovegreatbritain #abandonedplaces #ukpotd #instatravel
One of the stops on our Hidden Gems of Scotland tour and close to Killyhuntly Farmhouse are the impressive Ruthven Barracks. Built around 1720 destroyed by the Jacobites after retreating from the Battle of Culloden in 1746. . . . . . . . . #albagamefishing #orvisuk #scottishhistory #jacobite #ruthvenbarracks #outlander #bespokescotland #alba #visitscotland #luxuryscotland #luxurytravel #highlands #scottishfood #thegreatoutdoors #explorescotland #thisisscotland #scottishluxury #scotland_insta #scots #outandaboutscotland #scotlandtravel #scotlandtrip #lovescotland #instascotland #scotspirit #igscotland #ig_scot #loves_scotland #insta_scotland

I don't like to wake up early, and usually you'll find me in bed with Greta until 10am. But if I have to get up, it better be to take in beautiful views like this. How about you guys? Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Recomendado: si están en Edimburgo un domingo les recomiendo dar una pasadita por el Mercado de Stockbridge, está lleno de tolditos donde venden productos frescos y artesanales al igual que comida lista. Por ahí me pille una paella 🥘 y unas arepitas venezolanas 😋 #Edimburgo #Mercadillos #Placeres ——————————————————————— recommended: if you’re ever in Edinburgh on a Sunday, go check out the Stockbridge Market, you will find stands with fresh and artesanal products as well as food ready to eat!

So here is a shot looking west through the pass of Glencoe! A bit more moody compared to my last visit here in summer with the famous 3 sisters - Gearr Aonach, Aonach Dubh and Beinn Fhada hiding under the mist! Some of you may remember this was the back drop to the main entrance of Hogwarts in Harry Potter and can be clearly seen at the end of the Deathly Hallows part 2! I feel pretty blessed to say i live in a country as beautiful as Scotland, and even when the sun is not shining the landscapes are spectacular! I also want to take this opportunity to thank the amazing @tmo87 for inviting me along with @craigon97 @visualcreativity @johnconway_creates @connorpmcewan @kreisson_ who are all extremely gifted photographers and videographers! Go check out some of their amazing work! . . . . #Glencoe #Highlands   #Scotland #ScotSpirit #VisitScotland #LoveScotland #ig_scotland #Adventure #Explore #NeverStopExploring #Wanderlust #GetOutside #Freedom #FreeSpirit #Travel #Backpacker #Thankful #Blessed #Happiness #SimpleThings #Photography #Nikon #D700   #landscapephotography #beautifulscotland #Wild #Wilderness #Mountains #Moody
A city has so much to show you. All you have to do is to look it with a slightly different perspective and you will be amazed with the results. Taken during my recent trip to Edinburgh with friends. 😍😍 Taken with my new Fuji XT-3 @visitscotland
Bird’s eye view of Dunnottar castle 🏰. I must have visited this place in total 4 times in past two months but finally managed to get perfect conditions to have this shot. First time I had to face low light 💡, second time missed the right composition, third time had to face strong winds which literally pushed me couple of times so no way my drone was flying. And finally the fourth time I had perfect conditions, right composition, enough time to take this pic. Hope you guys like it 😍. Moral of the story- there is no shortcut in getting something u desire. You need to practice, practice and more practice and be patient 😊😊. Have a lovely weekend everyone @scotlandmagazine
Leading paths up in the highlands. Always while taking a picture, try to have a foreground that would drive the audience into the picture. In this case it’s that walking path. This has to be one of my favourite pics taken recently in Glencoe. Everything just fell in place (lights, colours, perspective, composition). Have you been to Scotland yet . If not then you are missing out 😍😍 Picture taken with new Fuji XT-3 and 10-24 f4 lens

What a great weather up in Glencoe. It was a delight capturing Buachaille Etive Mor in colourful mode
